GPS Walking Tour

Members' Event

Join us for a walking tour with Chris Wood and explore how the unique architecture of the Barbican Estate affects GPS.

This guided walk explores how GPS works by leveraging the Barbican's unique architecture to make it fail. Led by Chris Wood, you will use a dedicated app to track GPS reception and the position of satellites.

The tour will last approximately one hour and will be followed by a group discussion and drawing session in the Level G Studio. You will discuss how we use GPS and the possibilities of re-thinking the relationship between infrastructure, architecture and our devices.

Chris Wood is an artist whose practice critiques emergent technologies and the shifts they bring to both social practice and ontology. He has exhibited internationally and recently completed a PhD in Media & Art Technology at Queen Mary, University of London.

There are two time slots for this event: 10.30am and 2.30pm
