PADA is an artist-led, non-profit arts organisation based in Barreiro in Lisbon’s South Bay, located within the old Companhia União Fabril (CUF) industrial park. Created in 2018, PADA provides artists with a space to develop their practice, interact with other artists, and explore new approaches in a post-industrial environment.
Salt Road artists Jaime Jackson and Sally Payen worked at PADA studios to create new work on the theme of Territory for exhibition as well as organizing a Salt road workshop and Climate Declares Emergency artist talk.
Jaime produced a plankton AI moving image work, with AI bred plankton portraits layered over footage from the shoreline of post-industrial chemically toxic wastelands around Barreiro, Lisbon.
