Levels of Access: Bandwidth, Translation, and Virtual Spaces,
Hosted by The Blackwood Gallery
Panel discussion, part of Running with Concepts: The Mediatic Edition.
Anita Say Chan, Sean Lee, Carmen Papalia
While the proliferation of online events has lessened some barriers to physical access, the presumed openness, neutrality, and accessibility of virtual spaces bears further scrutiny. In this panel, artists and scholars working on and with media technologies reflect on how to create more accessible events online—attuned to broader issues of bandwidth, language, interpretation, and barriers to access to technology.
