Artist Statement:

    The New Media Residency is an 11-month residency programme run in collaboration by Tashkeel and ISEA International. Running from Summer 2014 to April 2015 as part of Tashkeel’s Guest Artist Programme, the New Media Residency features sound artists, Chris Weaver and Fari Bradley.

    The initiative is aimed at providing artists with time to develop their practice in an environment that encourages the exchange of ideas through practice and experimentation. Their residency will include an exhibition at Tashkeel in January 2015 as well as performances at the 20th International Symposium for Electronic Art (ISEA2014).

    For Bradley and Weaver, who are experimental musicians, “sound is a means of creating an intersection between art and music; it is an art form that consistently leaves much to the imagination of the listener.” They have worked together in a number of projects since 2006, which they create as a means to re-imagine sound in space using electronics, acoustic phenomena and domestic or re-purposed materials. In a recent collaboration, the pair worked on the pop-up radio concept ‘Falgoosh’ at Art Dubai.
