Presentation at Besides the Screen conference, Coventry, UK

Anthony Head and Leila Sujir presented their research on Elastic Space at the 2017 Besides the Screen conference at Coventry University in July 20-22nd. The conference was a mix of film studies, philosophy and art practice and participants were able to experience the Leila and Anthony’s presentation with 3D anaglyph glasses. The presentation included a number of projects including Elastic City Spacey (Sujir 2015), Tulipmania (Sujir 2005) and iMigration (Head 2016).

Leila Sujir also discussed her recent visit to British Columbia, CA, filming in ancient forests for a new project. It was interesting to discover how other presentations also shared Elastic Space themes, including migration, projection and old technologies.

Besides the Screen is an AHRC International Networks funded event.
