Davy Smith

Works in Newcastle United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

My work as a practicing artist is primarily concerned with how new technology is upgraded and discarded at an alarming rate. My main interest is in re-situating obsolete technologies via a process of experimentation with the differing uses and properties of hardware and software.

Although my practice is situated within the interests of new media, the work that I produce is almost exclusively object based, playing with the viewer’s expectations of the uses of the hardware that is re-presented.

Be a Featured Artist!

www.paper-boy.org are looking for our next round of featured artists. If you are a visual artist that explores the possible uses of new technologies, we would love to hear from you. It doesn't matter if you are a luddite or a technophile, work purely with information or object (software or hardware), installation, performance... paper-boy will consider you.

Images of your work, an artist's statement and links to your web site will be placed in our featured section for at least one month. After this, your work will be added to our archive, which will be going online soon.

Please contact us with an artist statement or CV and we will get back to you.

Deadline ongoing

We are asking for submissions of interest for report #2 of the paper-boy. This is to include critical essays, manifestos, artwork, listings for relevant seminars and exhibitions, or anything else that would fit in.

Do you have any short essays about the problems of the increasing upgrade cycle? Or paper based artworks surrounding new media? Do you have any ideas for projects based on the immediacy of communication with new technologies compared with 'paper based' communication methods?

The paper-boy would like to hear from you.

If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact us.
