Platform welcomes back Site Sessions which takes on our February Platform
Site Sessions is part of the Site Gallery programme, supported by the City of Ideas.
Humans have always liked climbing to high vantage points to see the view. We can’t help it, spectacular vistas have an emotional impact beyond our control. There’s nothing like an awesome view to make us aware of our relative vulnerability in the grand scheme of things. The situation is changing though, technology now lets us see other views – it emboldens us. For the first time, we are squaring up to the universe.
The first five Site Sessions of 2018 will look at some of these ‘landscapes’ – the sensory, symbolic and psychological spectacles which change our sense of perspective, and perhaps even take our breath away.
For our first event of the series we'll be hearing from Nikki Pugh and Ben Carlin, two creatives with very different, but complimentary, approaches to their surroundings. Join us for a beer at the Platform this February 15th, as we embark together on a journey across real and virtual landscapes.
As always, this Platform event is complimentary and is brought to you in association with Sheffield Technology Parks, Business Sheffield and Showroom Workstation.
