First Cavendish Arts Science Fellow Appointed
Moving image artist Logan Ryland Dandridge has been appointed as the First Cavendish Arts Science Fellow at Girton College.
Starting this October, the artist will develop new work in dialogue and community with Cavendish physicists grappling with questions of memory, and potential reimagined futures in the context of physics concepts such as non-linear time. Dandridge said: “I’m thinking about how physics can be used to reckon with the continuum of Black experience in the interest of more disruptive scientific and artistic interventions.”
Dandridge draws on a range of concepts and techniques such as assemblage and superimposition, and lists influences John Akomfrah and Arthur Jafa as well as Audre Lorde and Octavia Butler. The contrapuntal and probing nature of Dandridge’s research and interests provide a unique catalyst for raising questions about our world.
