"Photography places its users within a multidimensional and planetary technical network, putting the species to work..." *
Planetary Processing is a gathering of artists for whom photography is a mode of speculation on geological, celestial and bodily systems. Taking the form of a six-month artist-led Peer Forum, Planetary Processing is funded by Artquest and hosted by The Photographers' Gallery, London.
It is initiated by Rowan Lear with Victoria Louise Doyle, Luci Eldridge, Victoria Fornieles, Dawn M Gaietto, Leanne Bell Gonczarow, Oliver Griffin, Freddy Griffiths, James Hankey, Oliver Raymond-Barker, Melanie King, Dafna Talmor and Catherine M Weir.
