Francesca Franco - Daniel Temkin

In this duet, Francesca Franco’s (University Of Exeter) research focus that has been on the history of early Computation Art and its pioneers, blends with Daniel Temkin’s (Artist & Writer, New York City) practice of visualizing the mathematical patterns of computers in order to enhance our understanding of the role and impact of computational art in contemporary art practice.


Mark Franko - Lucia Ruprecht

Mark Franko (Temple University, Philadephia) and Lucia Ruprecht (University of Cambridge) speak about the instigation of The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Reenactment (2017) weaving its connection with the forthcoming publication The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Memory.
