Traces of the Live Event | Gallery 1

Beattie, Forrest, Harmey, Lunney, Price
13 May – 10 June

The trace of an experience leaves a sediment or a resonating footprint in the space it occupied; the exhibition will form from the material traces of an onsite experimentation period in the gallery. Whether the resulting artwork is sculptural, audio, performance, film, whatever form it takes, the outcome is a materialization of an impermanent digital process of research and development.

Raster | David Beattie

Through the exchange of electrons, Raster, explores the interconnected relationships of various materials and elements contained within the work. The electrons transmitted by the cathode ray gun inside an analogue television, transfer to the glass and beyond through static electricity. The exchange of positive and negative charges will remain on an object that comes into contact with it until it is neutralised by electrostatic discharge. This discharge is often experienced as an electric shock when it flows through the human body. Raster explores how this flow of charge connects disparate materials and things displayed within the exhibition.

Range | Cliona Harmey

Weather satellites over Ireland move in and out of range and are receivable via antenna about twice a day when they come into range of the antenna’s line of sight.
This piece focuses on live transmission from satellite NOAA 19 – the last of a generation of weather satellite which use a simple APT transmission as a method of broadcast signal. This is similar to a television signal, which was developed in 1960s and which is easily receivable by amateur enthusiasts using radio. The artist is experimenting with receivable live signals from the satellite to the gallery space to create an intersection of sculpture and object hacking.

Brew na Bóinne | David Lunney

Brew na Bóinne is a process driven multi-media installation work comprising sculpture, performance, painting, weaving, digital image manipulation and video/ animation. In this work the artist is seeking to create a new relationship between video and wall-based art. These two, mostly disparate, elements in contemporary art, will be brought together using a lengthy and novel process. Although this installation work includes many elements, the video piece created onsite during the process period will perhaps become the end product, the raisin d’être of the rest.

We Dream of Point Clouds | Richard Forrest

Following an interest in re-negotiating our interaction with the world around us, Richard is using the experimental period in the gallery to create a 3D virtual model of the Rua Red gallery space using a process called photogrammetry. By experimenting with our understanding of form, material and space a slightly otherworldly virtual environment will be created from physical fragments of the actual space.

Way Out | Robin Price

This work presents abstracted computer generated idealised landscapes and an open musical score responding in sympathy to meteorological or environmental sensor data and the movement of visitors in the gallery space. Examining the idea of the countryside as an escape from modern life, both in the recent past through raves and throughout history, the work points to a future where we may only escape digitally into virtual countryside’s.

Air Corridor | Gallery 1

Cécile Baboile
13 May – 10 June

Air Corridor spotlights the air traffic that mostly goes unnoticed down here on the ground. This work detects and monitors aviation activity in the area above the gallery space. A video screen displays each detected flight number, altitude, speed, longitude and latitude for passing airliners. The sounds of airplanes blast directly into the gallery, hijacking the overhead planes, as it were, out of the surrounding air space and disrupting the art space.

This installation by one of Frances leading contemporary digital artists has been curated by EUCIDA partner, Valerie Perrin,. It is brought to glitch in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland and marks the long-standing support that the embassy has been to Rua Red and the development of the EUCIDA project since its inception.

Remotely Human | Gallery 2

Cathy Coughlan
13 May – 23 May

How do we establish connectedness in a ‘post truth’ environment?; An interactive installation exploring the screen as a third party in a relationship between two people: the remote human and its flesh and blood counterpart; or between the public and private self, the piece looks at ways of breaking down this vast digital space, by situating the audience at the centre of the work.
