Cypher BILLBOARD: The Viewer, The Reader, The Heckler
Tuesday 13 July 2020, 6-7pm | Online
A talk and Q&A delivered by Cypher BILLBOARD co-founders Amba Sayal-Bennett, Erin Hughes, and Holly Graham, delivered as part of Conscious Isolation's Fine Art Lecture Series. The talk discusses some of the research and thinking that has shaped the project so far, as well as the wider advertising landscape that the billboard sits within. It features a reading of an essay collaboratively written for online journal DATEAGLE ART, titled ‘The Viewer, The Reader, The Heckler’, exploring different methods of critically engaging with this context through approaches framed as viewing, reading, and heckling.
