About the Business

We are delighted to welcome Canadian media artist Jessica Thompson as our latest research residency artist. Her practice investigates spatial and social conditions within urban environments through interactive artworks situated at the intersection of sound, performance and mobile technologies. Her current research investigates the ways that sound reveals spatial and social conditions within cities, and how mobile technologies complicate our relationship to place, territory and community.

She is researching for her new project Borderline. Borderline is a site-specific investigation that examines the role of sound in community formation, particularly in areas currently undergoing social change. Conditions within cities are often revealed through sound, indicating territory, demographics or functionality, and politicising urban space through its ability to invade the acoustic space of others and to affect behaviour.
