As part of Chelsea College of Art & Design's participation in Electrosmog, cultural practitioners will come together at ambient.space, in a temporary lounge in East London.

 

David Garcia,
Dean of Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, about the (Un)common Ground research project on creative encounters across sectors and disciplines. www.chelsea.arts.ac.uk

Manu Luksch & Mukul Patel are intermedia artists whose practice interrogates conceptions of progress through the devising of tools and frameworks and the instigation of processes, with a strong emphasis on research and dissemination. Recent works have addressed surveillance, corporate data harvesting, and the regulation of public space.
Manu & Mukul will speak about their new project 'Function Creep', a tactical fiction piece at research stage.

Heather Ring 
works as a landscape architect both on large-scale public spaces, and on locally-focused participatory projects. She initiated the Wayward Plant Registry, which develops pop-up adoption centres for unwanted plants, and the Wayward Land Trust as a platform for research and interventions, developing strategic responses to underutilized land and interim spaces that are both productive and poetic.

The Lorax
speaks for the trees. Since the early 70s, the Lorax has promoted the considered use of natural resources amongst children. Tirelessly, he alerts young generations to environmental degradation through books and films.
The Lorax, devised by Dr. Seuss, was believed to be such a threat by the US logging industry that they created their own character, the Truax, in response.

Further ambient.lounge guests: renewable energy expert Pete Grech (from Southern Solar), environmentalist and artist Caspar Below, and others...

We will be in conversation with panelists Horst Konietzny, curator and director of Reframes, Munich; Jo-Anne Green, Co-Director New Radio and Performing Arts, and editor of the Networked Performance blog, Boston; Karen Lancel & Hermen Maat, TeleTrust; Ela Kagel, Berlin, program curator of Transmediale and member of Public Art Lab;
