TechTalk: Robert Good - In Search of Silicon Valley - Thursday 10th November 2022
Join us to hear Robert's thoughts on the digital revolution, and what he learned from Silicon Valley.
Cambridge artist Robert Good discusses his visit to Silicon Valley earlier this year. He will share his thoughts about the digital revolution and the rise of technology, and show some of his digital animations, written in Python, that he creates in response to the challenges of the internet age.
Robert Good is an artist based in Cambridge UK who works with text to explore the problems of knowledge and the limitations of language. He is particularly interested in the migration of information from analogue to digital, books to bytes, and he uses Python scripts to to create digital animations and immersive installations from texts found online.
Good's work has been shown across the UK and in the US, Australia and Spain. His animation Legitimate Interest was shown at the WEB@30 exhibition hosted by The Centre for Computing History.
Robert Good is also the host of the podcast Something To Do With Art in which he talks to artists about what they do and why.
The talk will begin at 7pm and last around 60 minutes, with the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
