- RESONATE 2016 - publicatio
The exhibition focused upon the subtle, nuanced movements that can be found in organisms, in humans, and in machines, resonating across and between the animate, the inanimate, and the human-made: vibrations, tremors, twitches, pulses, rhythms, and the systems that underlie these movements. Motion, the basis of all life, is present not only in the visible, tangible realm, but right down to the atomic level. It is at the heart of our action and of our inaction, and it is the way in which we understand both time and the world around us. RESONATE sought to draw out the ways in which these various forms – organism, animal, non-animal, human, and machine – both resonate with and differ from each other.
The exhibition was accompanied by a publication in which five contributors – including the exhibiting artist, artist-curator Dr Kent Wilson, artist-theorist Professor Barbara Bolt, poet Ryan van Winkle, anatomist Dr Ryan Jefferies, and artist-philosopher Dr William Seeley – responded to the above conceptual stimulus. Offering texts, drawings, photographs and poetry, the contributions interwove and overlapped, exposing further rhythms, systems and resonances between and across the several practices at play.
The publication is available for purchase; please contact the artist.
