ATC Lecture — Lawrence Abu Hamdan "The Sonic Image"
An Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium Lecture, presented as part of A+D Mondays, co-sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, the Arts Research Center, and the Department of Art Practice

This lecture will deal not with the visualisation of sounds but rather the sonofication of images. What is politically at stake when an image behaves like a sound? The lecture will present ways of using sound and sonic imagination as new propositions for producing and reading images that are continuous with the omnidirectional and uncontainable way that sound propagates both throughout the space of a building, the border of a nation and through the architecture of memory itself.

Feb 1, 2021 06:30 PM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
