Lucy Pawlak:

The World Distributed University of Distance Learning and Remote Experience

Lucy Pawlak is an artist who creates playful and surprising work with moving image and live performance. She works with remote and internet streaming technologies, asking questions about how we live and act together. The World Distributed University of Distance Learning and Remote Experience (W.D.U.D.L.R.E.) is a fictional university created by Lucy to provide “non-traditional non-residential transformational experiences, programmes, research, education and development in an information society.”

This W.D.U.D.L.R.E. web tutorial in echolocation (seeing through sound) is an online virtual tour of the exhibition curently on show in Gallery 2, Queen’s Hall, Hexham, Northumberland, UK.
