Kate Frances Lingard
Desktop Tours is a series which invites artists from arebyte Gallery’s yearly programme to talk through their computer or laptop desktop, including key folders, bookmarks, and software they use in their work.
The artists talk about the work produced for their exhibition at arebyte as well as new content they are working on, their processes, past experimentations, and a look into their virtual mind.
Kate’s exhibition tender spots in hard code will be opening at arebyte on 11th June 2021; more info found here – https://www.arebyte.com/tender-spots-in-hard-code
Facilitated and edited by Marc Blazel.
Kate Frances Lingard lives and works in Glasgow. At the moment, they are thinking about how to enact an ethics/politics of care within the digital commons. Working with digitally created images, objects, environments and playing around with programming, they hope to question systems that define how we act and live together. Recently, they have been working with friends and collaborators to discuss the possibilities and complexities of decentralised and distributed technologies as shared infrastructure.
Marc Blazel is a multidisciplinary artist specialising in moving image, installation, live-streaming and web theory.
