Our opening speaker at TEDxLeeds2010 was Megan Smith, a new media artist and PhD candidate in Contemporary Fine Art Practice at Leeds Metropolitan University.
She uses the web as a space to source and make socially useful work. Her projects probe new systems for delivering syndicated data through narrative structure and she often works with Arduino, geo-location, digital print, video, and installation or a hybrid of these.
Her talk, Embedding Narrative, and extending social space, notably her project Our City Our Music and how Megan came to be in Leeds.
