This event is part of our Past Programme
Luke Berndt took the the audience through his automated camera system SkyBot. Programmed to identify and snap photos of airplanes as they fly above his house, Berndt creates a catalogue and archive of the constant stream of aircraft flying overhead. What does a particular plane model look like? Where is it coming from and where is it going? Who owns it? SkyBot investigates the trajectories that fill our skies and explores who owns and occupies the space above our heads.
Screen Walks is a new series of live-streamed artist/researcher-led explorations of online spaces and artistic strategies designed to illuminate a thriving – often overlooked – digital cultural scene. A new online collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, UK and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.
Luke Berndt is based Washington DC, where he is constantly tinkering on projects. He enjoys finding new ways to connect different disciplines together.
