20 years of seeing with GPS: perspectives and future directions

King’s College, London, UK 12.06.20 | 09:30-17:30 To mark twenty years of GPS in the public realm, participants are invited to join for a one-day symposium to discuss, question and reflect upon how GPS has affected how we see the world.

Artist Layla Curtis is a keynote speaker. Eventbrite booking – 20 years of seeing with GPS – this event is free to attend. Online event hosted by Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London.
