Elspeth (Billie) Penfold is the producer of A different LENS, an interactive map, created with the artist group Thread and Word. The map uses locative media to create a rich interactive experience in and around Margate (UK). A different LENS is one of the shortlisted works for the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards.

For this café on November 10, Billie and four of her creative colleagues, Jack Lowe, Sonia Overall, Virginia Fitch and Phoebe McIndoe, who participated in A different LENS, we will offer a menu at a long table where 12 guests take part in a spoken conversation, where additional participants can contribute to the conversation by text chat.
From the participants 7 will be selected to seat at the table, while others will be able to listen in and interact via text chat. The 7 will come and go, being replaced by others throughout the duration of the café.
This format is based on the Long Table, a concept by artist Lois Weaver, in which a conversation is sparked between a revolving number of 12 guests at a, well, long table, continuously replenished by members of the audience. Check out this PDF with a description of how the Long Table can work.

Topics will include psychogeography, and the practice of the participants, but will be fluid.
Billie’s practice seeks to create disruption more than resolution. She uses the digital map, through drawing and conversation, to explore how arts methods can bring a different kind of visibility and sensing to the experiences of the map entries in A different LENS, in ways that words alone cannot.

Walking, isolation and togetherness

Social isolation, already prevalent for many, has been exacerbated during the pandemic. Author Sonia Overall argues that walking alone can increase togetherness, regardless of absences and physical distance.
