INFO

What kind of work is photography? In the face of increasing automation and precarious working conditions how can the ‘photographic worker’ respond? Does the camera and digital network now play the role of ‘middle management’?

In this half-day practical workshop, educators and artists Adam Brown and Nicolas Maleve will experiment with ideas of photographic ‘work’ in the studio, experiment practically with machine learning, online piecework, and photographic studio practice, in the context of a discussion about creative work and its value.

A workshop for artists, students, educators and anyone concerned with the politics of digital culture or creative practice. No experience necessary.

Workers Education

Adam Brown makes work about time, permanence and process using collisions of old and new media.  He is Senior Lecturer in Photography at London South Bank University. Adam runs the tiny label Buncefield Records and Tapes. Buncefield currently produces very limited editions of vinyl discs containing photographs encoded to audio, which are played back in performance. By reviving obsolete means of data storage, the Buncefield project explores issues of performance, work and commodification with regard to photographic processes. http://www.centreforthestudyof.net/people/adam-brown/

Nicolas Malevé is a visual artist, computer programmer and data activist, who lives and works between Brussels and London. Nicolas is currently working on a Phd thesis on the algorithms of vision at London South Bank University. He is a member of Constant and the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism. In the Active Archives project, with Michael Murtaugh, he is experimenting with techniques to engage with large collections of visual materials and explore different ways to navigate and question them.
