Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1 – Film by Katie Dale-Everett Dance
June 6 @ 11:00 am - June 13 @ 4:00 pmFree
No. 34 is proud to show Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1, a short film from Katie Dale-Everett Dance, daily from Tuesday 6 June until Tuesday 13 June.
Acquired by Channel Four’s Random Acts, in Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1 the human body becomes a canvas for digital data. Inspired by the Right to be Forgotten law introduced in the UK in May 2014, the film addresses concerns surrounding online privacy and identity.
The average person spends 8 hours and 41 minutes per day on electronic devices, over 313 million people use Twitter and 300 million people use Instagram everyday.
Today because of this, we all have a digital tattoo, an unconscious data trail which will outlive ourselves in the flesh. Though we are regularly told about the potential risks of participating online, we often choose to ignore the inherent consequences of this in favour of social gratification, convenience and shareability.
There are however, many people fighting for the right to have information about themselves, which is made publicly available via online search engines, removed. This has been granted to some since the Right to be Forgotten law was introduced in the UK in May 2014.
Although this law is being enforced, the decision on what data is removed or not ultimately belongs to Google, who have only removed close to half of all UK requests since the legislation was introduced.
There will also be performance of a companion piece to the film, Conversations About the Digital on Saturday 10 June and Tuesday 13 June.
ABOUT KATIE DALE-EVERETT DANCE
Katie is inspired by real encounters and experiences and is interested in investigating and pushing the boundaries of where choreography can exist working, across multiple mediums including, dance, film and audio design. She is excited by the influence that context has on the creation and reception of her work, her practice involving making work for conventional spaces, as well as site-specific and unusual spaces. She has a strong interest in working with both professional performers and non-performers, as well as creating opportunities for her choreography to be engaged with by community groups. She has previously facilitated workshops for Brighton Dance Network, MapDance 2016, members of Three Score Dance Company and is an Arts Award Advisor. As a company she is keen to work with people who have never collaborated on dance projects before. She has previously hired BAFTA awarded sound designer Tom Sayers as an example who has since worked on further live performance sound design. She also offers student placement opportunities. Her work has been reviewed as encounters that spark new conversations and is accessible for both established dance audiences as well as those new to dance.
