Virtual Space presentations available
On 19th April, UCL Urban Lab Films and Passengerfilms hosted a fascinating evening of film and discussion on the topic of Virtual Space at St John on Bethnal Green. Sam Kinsley, Research Fellow at the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England, talked about how geographers have conceived and written about technicity and code and how it affects the architecture of our lives. Sam's presentation is available to download here and his blog entry on the event can be found here: http://www.samkinsley.com/2012/04/24/technicity-and-the-virtual/
Rob Kitchin, Director of the National Institute of Regional and Spatial Analysis and researcher in cartography, philosophy and data, also talked about the evening's feature film, 'Tron', and the 'spatial contours' of software and software imaginaries. His talk is now available on his blog, here: http://theviewfromthebluehouse.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/tron-some-observations.html
