Last week was the first day of the Random String fellowship, which I am thrilled to have been selected as a fellow for.

The day began with some benchmarking led by the programmes evaluator – which soon showed up for me my mistrust of technologies in relation to participatory settings. My thoughts for what I want to achieve within the fellowship include hoping to discover technologies which I don’t know exist yet, which will enable me to leave the content of my tours in public space for people to follow and discover – something which I have been puzzling over for some years – how to make the live element of the tours which form an important part of my practice, I to something that lasts longer than the tour itself. We ended the day with a tour…and a talk from Dom about post-digital art. Next step is for each fellow to be assigned a mentor – an artist with a significant digital aspect to their practice.

Looking forward to discovering my mentor And getting stuck in.
