This project arises from the practice of roaming - with physical
movement, a slice though a digital drift. Dérives augmented with
GPS, smart phones, encounters and social networking add
informational pulls to the established situationist activity. As
‘foreigners’ to one another (delineated by Western Tradition to
come from different academic/intellectual fields) Shepley and
Rowland test their ideas to form flowing confluences of creativity.
Through an emergent and disruptive anti-disciplinary
collaboration Shepley and Rowland create an intersection of
‘visualized data’ which seems to both enhance (and hamper) its
own logic – i.e. an interactive format for community and
belonging. However, the work being less about an ‘art language’
and more about conversations as travelers in data, ‘foreign’ to one
another appears to enliven a belief in our own connections and
capacity to question.
Live data feed of viewers’ interactions with the work in the space
through e.g. motion sensors will merge with other live data
streams measuring e.g. temperature, and combine in a visual data
feed over time to produce a living and emergent image of
