Today I officially started work at the Furtherfield Gallery! They were doing a workshop on “Technologies of Attunement.” Two artists/physicists have been building this sculpture to measure VLF waves and today they had three other artists/physicists come in and brainstorm how best to capture and represent the disturbances. So, needless to say, I was not much help on today’s project. But they were all very nice! and I learned more about physics than I ever have in my entire life! My job was to “document the process,” so I took pictures of the group deep in discussion and constructing the large antenna.
Then in the afternoon, I watched a documentary on the current gallery exhibition. It was basically interviews with the artists where they described the concept behind their work. Tomorrow (and Friday) I am going to be working in the gallery, showing people around and telling them about the exhibit. I will also be working with another student from a British University, which I am really excited about!
