CI Labs #11: Data-driven Publishing

March 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

How is technology disrupting the publishing industry and providing artists with new opportunities to disseminate their work?

CI Labs #11: Data-driven Publishing

CI Lab #11, organised in collaboration with the Fruitmarket Gallery, will consider how digital technology has opened up new ways of making and disseminating creative work, providing unprecedented access to audiences and enabling artists to record and archive work in ways that make it more accessible and interactive.

This event coincides with the Fruitmarket Gallery’s annual Artists’ Bookmarket.

Speakers include:

Barrie Tullett is the featured artist at this year’s Artists’ Bookmarket, with a month-long exhibition at Custom Lane running on from the fair. Barrie is the author of Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology (Laurence King Publishing, 2014), and has been working for the last thirty years on an obsessive project to make a visual representation of each of the 100 cantos of Dante’s Divine Comedy using the ‘obsolete’ technologies of wood and metal type, typewriters and letraset. This exhibition marks the completion of the series and includes four digital ‘remixes’ of Tullett’s prints from Dublin-based graphic designer Brenda Dermody.

Jen Ross is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, where she is co-director of the Centre for Research in Digital Education, fellow at the Edinburgh Futures Institute, and leads the Digital Cultural Heritage cluster in the Centre for Data, Culture and Society. Her research has focused on online learning and education futures in higher education, and on digital engagement and learning in the cultural sector, including the Artcasting project with Tate and National Galleries of Scotland.

Following on from CI Lab 11, CI Studio 6: Digital Publishing: Do’s and Dont’s will take place at The Fruitmarket’s pop-up space at Waverley Mall on Tuesday 10th of March.
