Our readers will have noticed that we’ve been blogging and tweeting energetically over this past year with all the latest news, events and activities from Claire’s AHRC-funded project on Latin(o) American Digital Art. The grant has just come to an end this month, but this doesn’t mean the end of the project. The good news is that we’ve got lots of exciting new developments in the pipeline, and will be sharing news with you all soon about a new interactive installation, image gallery, exhibition book, and lots more.
In the meantime, we’d like to say thanks to all who have contributed to the project over this exciting and exhilarating year. Thanks firstly to our wonderful artists Brian Mackern, Marina Zerbarini, Bárbara Palomino and Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga without whose fantastic artworks this project would never have been possible. Especial thanks go to Brian, who, as our Artist in Residence, threw himself into life in Liverpool, engaged with the city, and took the project in directions we’d ever have expected.
Thanks also to the Independents Liverpool Biennial, who supported us in so many ways as we were planning and running the exhibition, and also since then in being so active in promoting us. And thanks to FACT for providing us with their fantastic venue, for Brian’s workspace, and for welcoming us into their fold. Thanks to all the participants in our workshops, in particularly the lively and engaged members of the Veterans in Practice group.
And finally… with the start of this grant, we welcomed a new member to the latamcyber project, Jordana Blejmar, who has worked tirelessly throughout this year alongside Claire in organizing events, developing ideas, and generally ensuring everything works smoothly. Although Jordana’s work as Research Assistant on the project comes to an end, this is just a new beginning, as we’ll be doing joint events with her in the future.
