Myfanwy Frost-Jones will be ‘in conversation’ with CCAD lecturer, Lucy Dawe Lane on Friday May 5th from 1-2pm in Studio 12. Lucy will introduce us to Pauline Oliveros’ idea of ‘Deep Listening’ as we rewatch and engage with the audio/ video piece, followed by an in-depth discussion on the many themes of landscape, labour and food production touched on in Unsustainable, whilst also delving into the many stories behind the making of this work and allowing for a question and answers session with the artist. All welcome!
