our altered places
media: digital installation
concepts: place, technology
Our Altered Places is an art series that takes the meaning of a place and attempts to influence it using alternative histories or identities that are not prominent in that particular place. The project began in 2011 at a residency in The Big Picure , Tallaght. It features digital media installations and web-based art platforms.
It is influenced by writing on place by theorists including Michel de Certeau, Michel Foucault, Marc Augé, Anne Galloway and Georges Perec.
