Chris Sams, artist, writer and teacher at the London College of Communication, will lead on a walk project inviting artists, photographers and general public to join, trace it, record it and interact. Drawing on the tradition of psychogeography, the walk will explore the area of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to become the new education and cultural district, including UAL’s new campus for London College of Fashion.Meet outside Pudding Mill Lane DLR station.
This event is in conjunction with the Relational Geographies exhibition in the UAL Showroom:
Relational Geographies brings together emerging and established UAL artists whose work explores relationships between measurement, movement, distance, and time.
Drawing on Brandon LaBelle’s definition of sound as creating ‘a relational geography that is most often emotional, contentious, fluid, and which stimulates a form of knowledge that moves in and out of the body’ (Acoustic Territories: Sound Culture & Everyday Life, 2010), the exhibition takes the visitor on an intimate and poetic journey through inner and outer spaces.
Ultimately it becomes a space where to rethink and understand the relationship between us and our environment.
