Mapping Participation

Participatory media arts projects using GPS tracking and mapping.

Beverley Hood is a media artist, researcher and lecturer in the School of Design, at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh. Her research practice over the past fifteen years has studied the impact of technology on relationships, the body and human experience, through the creation of practice based projects and writing. Teaching has included postgraduate studio and context courses, undergraduate studio courses and PhD students, across the School of Design.

Beverley is currently working on participatory media art projects that include GPS tracking research using mobile phones, as the basis for performative artworks. At the Highwire, she will discuss a recent project 'Mapping & Tracking' using GPS tracking, the Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert and the surrounding forest as a canvas. The project was a collaboration with visual artist Sharon Quigley, audio-visual artist Emma Bowen and participants of the Abrupt Encounters program, a collective of creatively engaged participants with learning disabilities.
