Jon Thomson working in collaboration with Alison Craighead, makes artworks that examine the changing socio-political structures of our Information Age.
In particular they have been looking at how the digital world is ever more closely connected to the physical world becoming a geographical layer in our collective sensorium. Time is often treated with a sculptor’s mentality, as a pliable quantity that can be moulded and remodelled.
Jon will present and discuss a selection of works made in collaboration with Alison Craighead spanning their first twenty-five years working together. Rather than giving a general overview, the lecture will focus on their visual use of text, and how it has remained a central part of their wider practice.
