Talks event with Phoenix Brighton artists Kate Genevieve and Simon Wilkinson discussing their work and how they use technology.

As part of a programme of special events and activities for the Brighton Digital Festival, Phoenix Brighton is pleased to present this DIGITAL SPOTLIGHT talk featuring Kate Genevieve (CHROMA) and Simon Wilkinson, two Brighton-based artists whose work is recognised internationally.


C H R Θ M A is an artist’s group that creates public and participatory events that explore the flexible relationship between the physical and the virtual, the real world and imagined ones. Inspired by cybernetics and ecological thinking, C H R Θ M A projects collaborate across disciplines, bringing in diverse perspectives from dance to architecture, magic to neuroscience, anthropology to physics.

Kate Genevieve is an artist, director and researcher; she is working on a DPhil at the University of Sussex creating virtual experiences to explore the plasticity of subjective perception and embodiment. Currently, Kate is exploring how virtual reality and network technology can activate new forms of relationship with other humans and the living environment. She will talk about her creative practice, Virtual Reality, and a changing relationship to the land – drawing on various C H R Θ M A projects that combine VR with outdoor experience.

Simon Wilkinson

Simon has been working as an artist for 25 years, his work enjoys regular international touring and commissions and has been featured in Tate Modern. In this presentation Simon will talk about the underlying subtext to his body of work which spans electronic music, gallery based visual arts, AV and immersive interactive transmedia and tech based performances; he will then engage the audience in a discussion around a proposal for why we need to publicly fund the arts.

This is a free event with limited numbers at Phoenix Brighton. Please RSVP to sarah@phoenixbrighton.org
