|Point Clouds and Wormholes
These terms refer to aspects of Imogen Stidworthys research methodology: the point cloud
as a network of reference points - usually in the form of an image, word, or fragment of text
- which describe a field of research, as well as the 3D laser-scanning technique (point
clouds) which she has been using in a number of works since 2010. The wormhole is an
analogy to understand those points not as markers of a topography, but as passages to
enter the dimension of a bigger thought, idea, or a more complex image, perhaps
embodied in a particular narrative or history.
Imogen Stidworthy will talk about her research and methodologies, through consideration
of a small number of works spanning many years. These form a loose genealogy to the
recent installation Balayer - A Map of Sweeping, and trace her evolving interest in the
space of the voice and subjectivity, within and outside language.
