Yang Jiajing: Feeling the space


In order to explore the idea of understanding the space, Esther Stocker created a series of fuzzy spaces. Black and white are selected to intensify the sense of contrast. In the work Galleria Studio 44, what is really impressive is that there seems to be a vague but valid logic equation behind this design, which leads to an unusual physical transformation among the linear, plane and cubic modes. Different cuboids in… Read More

Fearghal Duffy: ‘Being the Shortest Day’

Grey chilly misty morning

Since today is the winter’s solstice, the shortest day of the year, I thought it a good idea to post a poem, which to my mind, perfectly captures what I personally intuit this time of the year to be about. Although the modern Christmas is very glitzy and gaudy and driven by a shallow consumerism, there is, away from the brightly lit shops and towns, a real crepuscular quality to this time… Read More

Alba, the bunny, is an albino bunny, genetically engineered by Kac’s collaborators, the zoosystemician Louis Bec and scientists Louis-Marie Houdebine and Patrick Prunet.

Fearghal Duffy: ‘A Fable for Tomorrow’

Silent Spring

‘THERE WAS ONCE a town in the heart of America where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings. The town lay in the midst of a checkerboard of prosperous farms, with fields of grain and hillsides of orchards where, in spring, white clouds of bloom drifted above the green fields. ‘In autumn, oak and maple and birch set up a blaze of color that flamed and flickered across a… Read More

Shane Byrne: Mindful Music

[Improvision Data]

TimeStamp=11:27:02.489 on Oct 03, 2007

As you may be aware by now, I am very much interested in finding new ways of interfacing with the computers and electronic devices that I use to compose my musical works. So far I have spoke about using infrared cameras, washing machines and the weather to help influence and direct the process of composing electronic music. All these tools can be seen as an extension of the performer or composer into… Read More

Louise Brady – Let’s talk about Love


“It ought to make us feel ashamed when we talk like we know what we’re talking about when we talk about love.”  – Raymond Carver This week I’d like to talk about love. Well, really the current show in IMMA, What We Call Love. I went to see this show a few weeks ago and I find myself repeatedly thinking back to it. Wolfgang Tillmans, Central Nervous System, 2013 It was one… Read More

Space Property – Fiona Gannon

A5JF2J Astronaut with For Sale sign

At the start of it all there is He: the classical ideal of ‘Man’, formulated first by Protagoras as ‘the measure of all things’, later renewed in the Italian Renaissance as a universal model and represented in Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. An ideal of bodily perfection which, in keeping with the classical dictum mens sana in corpore sano, doubles up as a set of mental, discursive and spiritual values. Together… Read More

Jiajing Yang: Conveying time through collage

Carousel de la Tour Eiffel

Pep Ventosa’s work creates new visual experiences by deconstructing and reconstructing photographic images. The images are tinged with color, a trace of movement and atmosphere of different surrounding neighborhoods. Dozens of photos create an abstraction of places we’ve never been and we’ve never seen. As Pep said ‘Part memory, part imagination, not like the way we see’. In this series, multiple shots of carousels were taken while walking in a levitra… Read More
