One-to-one: a talk and Q&A about the practice and works of artist Tim Bishop.
In this talk, Tim will talk about his practice blending immersive technologies, performance, sound recordings and installation art through methodologies that focus on the individual participant rather than group audiences. Discussing the challenges of trying to make work for an unknown audience member, Tim will talk about several of his projects such as Blackout, an immersive spatial sound and performance work in total darkness, and Sheltered, an upcoming installation exploring climate change through an experiential art work created in relation to each participant’s EEG data.
Tim Bishop is a performance and sound artist, based in Lund, Sweden. His practice focuses on creating personal connections between artwork and audience, prompting individual and, often, emotional responses through sensory, evocative and highly aesthetic experiences. Revolving around each participant’s perceptions of themselves and the environment around them, often in a one-to-one context, Tim uses spatial audio, darkness and immersive technologies to explore knowledge of the self through our shared experiences. Tim’s work has been shown in Sweden, Norway, Romania, Russia and the UK, including performances at Arnolfini gallery, Bristol, Lunds konsthall, Dunkers kulturhus in Helsingborg, Galleri CC in Malmö and Kulturhuset, Stockholm. Tim is also the founder and curator of Mono Festival of One-to-One Performance and has taught spatial audio, MaxMSP and field recording techniques at places such as Lund University, Malmö Art Academy, Region Gävleborg, VR Narrative Lab and BoostHbg.
