Beyond the Screen
Framing Locative Consciousness
9.30-10.20: Francisco J. Ricardo (Boston, USA)
Abstract: In locative art's practice of layering narrative, image, and sound onto existing architecture and geography, physical form becomes the support for a separate conceptual form provocatively framing space as an act, rather than as tacit support. This presentation examines perceptual questions posed by and evocative processes central to various works utilizing locative media in architectural, geographical and installation-based instances, and traces conceptual arguments emerging from this new meta-formalism.
