Trackingshot investigates frontier spaces through art practice and cross-disciplinary research.
‘Trackingshot.1 Desert Sessions’ took place in the California Mojave Desert in April 2017.
Over two-weeks, artworks were broadcast daily from A-Z West and the wider environs of Joshua Tree and Wonder Valley: California, to UK/international subscribers, directly to their desktop/tablet and mobile device as a transmitted interruption.
This event marks the launch of the Trackingshot online archive where broadcasts from Desert Sessions will be freely available to stream. Over 24 hours across November 4-5, all the broadcasts will be screened on Big Screen Southend, at the time they were originally broadcast back in April 2017. A publication of three specially commissioned essays, produced in response to the broadcast, by Jonathan Griffin, Ellen Mara De Wachter and Chris Fite-Wassilak, will accompany this event
The first broadcast will screen at 9.30am on Saturday 4 November. Please join us for drinks on Saturday between 6-8pm where a cluster of 5 broadcasts will be screened.
