“Owen Chapman from the Mobile Media Studio at Concordia University will lead an informal discussion with Jen Southern and participants in Montreal and Lancaster, on GPS-related sound projects, mapping and data visualization technologies, including two funded research-creation projects: Audio-Mobile and Echoscape. Southern will describe other related work, including the recent installation of her work ‘Polyrhythmia’ in Montreal, and the Comob free iPhone app. This discussion of the place of geo-located sound in our work will be inflected with a reflection on the similarities and differences between research-creation, as practiced at Concordia and the “practice-led” or “studio-based” research found in UK Universities such as at Lancaster. This transatlantic pop-up conversation is part of a growing collaboration between mobilities lab in Lancaster and mobile media studio in Montreal. All are welcome, and we would be especially interested in hearing about your own research and creative practice.”

The current exhibition at the Peter Scott Gallery is ‘Curate the Campus’, and the discussion will take place in the pop up café in the gallery.

The Catalyst project ‘I/O Insides Out’ is also part of the ‘Curate the Campus’ exhibition.

Jen Southern will be presenting ‘Creative Practice as Mobile Method‘ on Friday 10th, as part of the Mobile Methods panel, moderated by Matt Soar.
