Susan Collins: In Conversation, 1997, pp. 4-32

Brighton: BN1+Lighthouse, 1997

"This publication, covering the work of the artist Susan Collins, coincides with In Conversation, a large scale interactive intervention that took place both inside and outside of Fabrica, Brighton from 14th November to 13th December 1997. The work interfaced Duke Street in Brighton with the Internet through the use of sound and video projection. This new work was one of eleven Channel commisions, entitled Inhabiting Metropolis, which explored the concept of the 'Digital City' ( and was curated and produced by BN1 + Lighthouse.


The artist regards In Conversation as a culmination of her series of interactive intervention works concerning human communication in public spaces, the first of which was her interactive sound work for the Woolwich Foot Tunnel in 1993."
