Artist-in-Residence at Digital Artist Residency
== Mon 13th June – Sun 24th July 2016 ==
Alison Ballard is a cross-disciplinary artist whose work examines human relationships to objects, places, and one another, through making films, installations, and performances. She often works site specifically and seeks to produce works that lie between disciplines in order to research how they share ideology, presentation and audience experience.
During the residency, Ballard will explore the tension between online and offline spaces by researching how physical places can manifest online, creating a series of short screen-based works in a range of media including video, audio, gifs, and live streaming. Ballard will also be artist-in-residence at Metal, Southend-on-Sea working in the centre in Chalkwell Park to develop a new digital work using interaction of physical space, integrating online and onsite experiences by altering the purpose and content of the space.
