Plymouth University Conference ‘Traffic: movement / place / flow / mobility’ 15 April 2016 Talk_ Presentation of ‘Copper Geographies’, Plymouth University. This conference seeks to explore the symbiotic relation of artists’ activities and an understanding of the ways in which place might be conceived in relation to flows, traffic and mobility. An important aspect of the conference explored the ways in which contemporary artworks understand both place and subjectivity as shifting concepts and to examine what agency that an artist or group of artists may have in regard to this fluid notion of place.
