Welcome to Morning Coffee at G.A.P – an informal event held on Thursday, 18th of November in G.A.P’s premises in Kamppi.
For the next Morning Coffee at G.A.P, we are excited to introduce to you an image maker, researcher and educator David Flood. David will during the morning session talk about his practice and PhD studies at the University of Helsinki.
The session will be participatory where the audience will be able to interact with the speaker, ask questions and discuss their work/art together with them.
Practice and Studies
David mostly works in the medium of photography and his work centres around the role of images in relationships of power in society, often with a focus on urban space. His PhD research at the University of Helsinki is positioned in the context of the current urban renewal taking place across the greater Helsinki area and how digital visualising technologies, such as smartphones and surveillance, mediate our perceptions of urban space and the making of new urban publics.
About David Flood
David Flood is an Irish image-maker, researcher and educator working between Finland and Ireland. His work examines the dominant power structures that exist around us. In particular, he focuses on how financial capital affects everyday life and the role the photographic image can play in picturing it. He is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Helsinki in Environmental Sciences. His research work centres around intersections of aesthetics, urban space, human geography, and economics and how these are mediated through digital visualising technologies such as smart phones and surveillance systems. He holds a practice led Masters by Research and a qualification in Visual Education from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology Dún Laoghaire. Currently he teaches photography courses at the Espoo Adult Education Centre in Tapiola and while residing in Ireland taught photography at institutes such as the Gallery of Photography, Dún Laoghaire Further Education Institute and the Institute of Art, Design and Technology Dún Laoghaire in Dublin.
