Welcome to DS7!

We are really excited to meet you all and get started this Tuesday.

As we mentioned in the presentation, we will have our first meeting at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London at 11am on Tuesday, 22 September.

We’re going to begin by experiencing a walk by Janet Cardiff called The Missing Voice (Case Study B).

 

Here’s a link to her work explaining this piece in context:

And this is the link to download the audio that accompanies the walk:

Everyone should bring their phones (or another similar device) with the audio downloaded as well as headphones to the meeting on Tuesday. If you’re not able to bring it on a device, let us know by Monday so we can arrange for a limited number of MP3 players.

Also bring an umbrella or raincoat in case the weather is bad on the day.

We encourage you to read about Janet Cardiff and the walk itself before Tuesday – we can experience the walk together first hand on the day. We thought this would be a good way to begin a conversation about the ideas we will be exploring over the course of this year.

After the walk, we have booked a room at the Whitechapel Gallery to introduce the first brief and have a group discussion. We should be done by 4pm.
