BYOF - Artist Talk
Sat 24 Feb to Sat 24 Feb
Artists Close and Remote (Sophie Mellor and Simon Poulter) have been working on 'Bring Your Own Future’, a project using watercolours and virtual reality to create new ways of seeing Slough, commissioned by HOME Slough.
For the project they have created a series of 360 degree watercolours, which they have then placed into a virtual reality environment to create a 360 journey through Slough's town centre.
For this short talk, hear about how they created the artwork, from street space to digital space. You will also have a chance to hear from the local residents involved in the project.
The talk will take place in The Gallery at the The Curve, where you can also view the 360 watercolours and take a 360 watercolour journey using Google Cardboard and your smartphone.
This session is part of a wider day of events for 'Bring Your Own Future' the finale of the HOME Slough commission by artists Close and Remote. More details on the project here - http://www.bringyourownfuture.net
