Chris Speed, artist

Chris Speed is a research active designer working within the field of Digital Architecture, Human Geography and Social Computing developing new forms of spatial practice that transform our experience of the built environment.

Speed describes his work ‘GPS Territories’ as follows: ‘During 2007 I was a artist ‘not’ in residence for the Millfields Trust in Plymouth. I worked with a secondary student called Harry, and between us we used GPS to explore the different geographical boundaries that members of the Trust thought it served. Interestingly, but not surprising with any charity no one agreed at all! We blogged it all and Harry wrote some single word poetry as a way of redescribing the boundary.’ To see his results, click here.

Speed’s work encompasses more than just GPS, exploring a wide range of technology to explore the modern environment. If you would like to view more of his work, click here to view his site.
