about artist and participants
Nina Pope and Karen J Guthrie are mapping out their own very particular forays in and out of the datascape: “Our journals, websites and electronic documents offer open-ended narratives that are testament to the way in which our maps may be coming full circle after the objectivity and information standardizations of modernism. The distortions of scale, emotion, objectivity offer us the best ways to a landscape that makes us all voyeurs, adventures, colonialists, marketers and monsters…”
The artists Nina Pope (1968) and Karen J. Guthrie (1970) live and work in London and Cumbria. They have worked in collaboration since 1995 developing their own projects and more recently as co-directors of ‘Somewhere’. ‘Somewhere’ is an organisation which generates and promotes innovative cultural projects with a focus on collaboration, public access and new technologies often explored through live projects with both an on-line and ‘in situ’ audience.
