This coming Saturday (30th March) I shall be giving a talk on my current body of work at Faber Studios in Limerick city. This is organized by Occupy Space.
This week I had a studio visit by Anna Crudge who will be curating my upcoming solo exhibition 'Sensorium' and Killian Barton who will also be involved in the project. Killian is currently a post graduate researcher in the field of surface science.
"Surface Science deals with fundamental experimental and theoretical studies in the physics and chemistry of surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures. It covers topics contributing to a better understanding of basic phenomena occurring on surfaces; the word "surface" being interpreted to include all interfaces between solids, liquids, polymers, biomaterials, nanostructures, soft matter, gases and/or vacuum."
We discussed both Killian's work and 'Sensorium' in great detail and I think by the end of the discussions there was a fantastic feeling of excitement in the air. I shall keep Killians contribution a secret until the time is right. Which shall be soon.
Sensorium will open to the publin late June and shall take place in Soma Contemporary in Waterford.
"The Anthropic Principle is the idea that we live in a universe set up to allow our existence. If the universe were any other way, we would not exist, and would hence be unable to make any observations. Since it was introduced by the theoretical physicist Brandon Carter in 1973, the Anthropic Principle has progressively come into vogue among the physics and philosophical communities, providing a simple explanation for some otherwise very perplexing coincidences. For example, why are certain physical constants so oddly fine-tuned? While some people view this as evidence for a supernatural creator, materialists simply observe that if it were any other way, we wouldn't be here.
Due to the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics, many physicists have come to view our universe as one among many--possibly an infinite number, or superset of universes sometimes called "the multiverse." Though we know nothing about the underlying process which could generate such universes, presumably it is random, leading to universes with a variety of different sizes, ages, densities, dimensions, and fundamental physical laws.
This is my 800GB+ external hard-drive, well its 2 tapped together. It cost me 5 euros in total as I reused the old HDD from my old laptops and rehoused them.
Recently I attended a workshop: Physical Computing Masterclass.
This workshop was taught by Benjamin Gaulon at HackLab (dublin). The workshop concentrated on PureData and the physical interface between an Arduino and its digital interface environment.
This was a fantastic workshop and i immensely enjoyed the introduction into Pure Data.
