Radar Residency at Loughborough University

Posted on: October 9th, 2019 by libby

Libby has started a research residency as part of Loughborough University's contemporary art programme Radar.

Inspired by the theme of 'Risk', Libby will work with researchers from social sciences and computer science to explore risk in creating a new performance with machine learning, while also thinking about mitigating risk by encountering 'the other' in human and non-human systems. The performance will explore notions of chanting, through it's material properties, across the biosphere and will place singer Nabihah Iqbal (Ninja Tunes) into dialogue with an AI bot.

Radar is LU Arts’ commissioning and research programme. They invite artists to produce new work in response to and as part of research undertaken across Loughborough University’s two campuses, and programme events bringing together artistic and academic work. The work they commission is process-led, frequently participatory, and takes place both in the public realm and across our campuses.
