Exploring the interaction between technology, culture and society, artists Wesley Goatley and Geogina Voss have created Ground Resistance - two installations which focus on the concept of the ‘smart city’ and how Milton Keynes appears through the data that it generates.
A projected representation of Milton Keynes forms the heart of an immersive installation where audiences can watch live data collected from utilities and communications sources. Sounds respond live to the data, creating a visual and sonic experience which changes with every visit.
At The National Museum of Computing at Bletchely Park:
The artists have installed their own sensors to capture live data from the commercial aircraft whose movements underpin the international capacity of ‘smart cities’.
SPECIAL EVENT: Wesley Goatley and Georgina Voss will host a panel discussion on Saturday 16 July at 7pm. Read more here
