Samm Anga and Veronica Petukhov discuss how they self-innovate a more democratic process for digital collaboration and AR.

About

Why should I attend?

Samm and Veronica will discuss their collaborative residency project “capsule.io”, an audio-visual piece that transmits their feelings towards 2020’s volatility.

Being young graduates at the forefront of the impending digital art revolution, they will touch on key concerns for independent artists moving forward- curating work for a more virtual generation, and devising DIY initiatives with affordability and sustainability in mind.

This talk is especially relevant to the current pandemic situation, with both artists discussing the difficulties of collaborating on a project during the lockdown, in different cities, with no access to normal facilities and higher-end technology.

They will talk about using alternative programs and methods to achieve the desired audio-visual experience and how this metamorphosis and constant evolution of the piece happened.

Tune in to benefit from creative solutions for new artists digitalising their practice, and for established artists adapting to the current virtual climate.

About the artists

Samm Anga (b. 1997) is a Nigerian-born multimedia artist specialising in sound art and the moving image. A Masters student on the Sound Arts course at London College of Communication; he is constantly having to question the multi-faceted identity of sound in the Anthropocene – how the sounds of nature become an intrusion to urban life, how the crunch of plastic underscores global decay.

Veronica Petukhov (b.1994) is a digital artist, VJ and art student. She was born in Italy to two Soviet Union immigrants. She moved to Scotland to study Contemporary Art Practice where her passion for digital art and electronic music flourished. Her university research focuses on Augmented Reality, filters and selfies.
