This regular bar night for photographers brings two professionals in photography together to give their perspectives and advice around the theme of Alternative Technologies.
Join Adam Brown and Chong Ng as they discuss the innovative ways they work with camera apparatus as a part of their practice.
Adam Brown makes work about time, permanence and process using collisions of old and new media. He is Senior Lecturer in Photography at London South Bank University. Adam runs the tiny label Buncefield Records and Tapes. Buncefield currently produces very limited editions of vinyl discs containing photographs encoded to audio, which are played back in performance. By reviving obsolete means of data storage, the Buncefield project explores issues of performance, work and commodification with regard to photographic processes.
The work has been exhibited in the UK and Australia, most recently at the Bristol Photography Festival, 2014.
Lam Pok Yin Jeff (b.1988) and Chong Ng (b.1987) are artists living in Shanghai and London, who work with sculptural objects, installations and performances, which deal with the ontological nature of the medium.
Obsolete technologies and everyday objects are reinvented, adapted and radicalised, and norms around photography are often taken to the extreme, until they start to fall apart, in order to provide alternative understandings of the medium beyond the picture plane.
