BITS – Hide by David Adey

In ALL, BITS by Alex Pedersen

David Adey‘s Hide utilizes a three dimensional scan of his entire body. Over 75,000 “triangulated faces” are unfolded and flattened in one artwork. Adey constructs this work with laser-cut paper, fluorescent acrylic, and adds pins to display his own skin in a life size diptych.

Alex is a critical scholar and social scientist. During her degrees, Alex recognized a dearth of knowledge transfer between the academy and the general public. To address this gap, she extends her empirical research through multiple mediums including: publications, formal lectures, public speaking events, radio, theatre and photography. In diversifying access to her research, Alex honed a unique set of skills to plan, design and produce events for a wide variety of audiences. To date, she was responsible for several successful lecture series, community events and fundraisers across diverse settings. Most notably, Alex organized and implemented the 2015 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and was an advisor for the “Free Queen’s” Steering Committee (an initiative encouraging graduates to bring their work to the wider public). In addition, she has written numerous successful grant applications. An activist at heart, Alex advocates for critical thinking in and beyond academic institutions.
