Tega Brain – 10/06/2020
A live-streamed and recorded event: stream link here on 10/06
In-grid dives into its second sub-theme of Shadow Subversions with artist and environmental engineer Tega Brain. In her works, Brain has subverted existing systems in multiple ways. In New York Apartment , she and Sam Lavigne have collected the totality of New York real estate into a single listing; in the workshop series Bushwick Analytica, Brain invited local middle schoolers to study data driven advertising and build their own targeted campaigns, ranging from “No School on Mondays” to “Play Fortnite”. Brain is also an Assistant Professor of Integrated Digital Media in New York University.
Eccentric engineering – 7:00pm GMT
In the open crit with In-grid, Brain and the residency artists discuss how corporate software like video conferencing apps and project management tools could be used critically by revealing the edges and ideologies of these technologies, making them open for re-imagination. This is a practice that Brain calls eccentric engineering; it is also at the core of In-grid, the desire to seeks and subvert the same tools that it has been built through (Slack, Zoom and YouTube) during the quarantine and social distancing.
