Project Space: Emma Charles, Surfaces of Exchange
14 January – 3 May 2014
Jerwood Visual Arts presents an exhibition of work by London-based artist Emma Charles titled Surfaces of Exchange. The exhibition includes work that forms part of Charles’ research into the physical framework and materiality of the Internet. Documenting both the London Internet Exchange and a number of locations in New York City, Charles attempts to map the tangible infrastructure of our expanding digital landscape. The installation includes a series of photographic prints and an audio track transcript of an interview with Mitchell Moss, Professor of Urban Planning at New York University. These works led to the making of her film Fragments On Machines, which will be screened at a one-off event on Friday 28 February 2014 from 6 – 8pm as part of SLAM Last Fridays.
Emma Charles’ work explores metropolitan spaces of productivity that are hidden from the public eye, primarily focusing on the more ethereal and abstract elements of industry and corporate environments.
There is also a screening tomorrow night of Fragments On Machines
A COLLAGE CONVERSATION ON TWITTER
We shared a studio during our final year at Central St Martins. Since graduating we rarely meet up but want to keep in touch & continue the conversation & exchange that we’d previously enjoyed. Collage is an integral part of both our practices and a game of collage Exquisite Corpse (mediated through social media & email) seemed an interesting way to engage in an ongoing discourse.

COLLAGE 1 (four stages)
COLLAGE 2 (two stages)
Two of Ghost on the Wire artist Sarah Choo’s works, ‘The Hidden Dimension II’ and ‘It was a Tuesday, just any Tuesday’ were screened recently at Cinema Total, a programme for film professionals hosted by the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin during the Berlinale. Since 2008 the cultural institute has invited film professionals from Central and Eastern Europe to gather in its premises during the Berlin Film Festival. Located in the heart of the city not far from the festival grounds, Cinema Total’s variety of events, including workshops, panel discussions, networking events and parties, encourage cooperation and reflect the many aspects of the film-making process: from development to production. Stimulating collaborations and co-productions in the region is one of Cinema Total’s main goals.
INVISIBLES – SELECTION FILM / VIDEO ART
Studio Gallery 09.02.2014 – 12.02.2014
INVISIBLES skirts the borders between film and video art, bringing together works by diverse filmmakers and artists, including Bence Fliegauf, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Tracey Moffat, Reynold Reynolds, Zuzanna Janin and Sarah Choo. This selection explores an atmosphere of unknowing, at times even unease, familiar from some cinematic experiences, but through video/film art. Several works employ techniques of narration and dramaturgy spectators are accustomed to in cinema, while other works create this mood with quite different techniques.
The Hidden Dimension II is currently still being showcased at the Best of CHB:
