Make Your Own Light and Sound Device in Response to Brian Eno, 77 Million Paintings
This playful adult workshop is an opportunity to build your own O’Scamp, an audio device which is controlled by light. Participants will be introduced to electronic components and will construct their own circuit, through exploration, experimentation, and customisation. At the end of the workshop, participants will take away a functioning sound generating instrument. No previous knowledge is required.
Interzone brings together a group of internationally prominent and emergent artists whose approaches to their individual art practices embrace sound, installation and visual components. The project is a six week conversation, the gallery re-imagined as liminal land between borders, playing host to a sustained exploration of the multi-faceted, complex, mutually invigorating relationships possible across visual and sonic art practices and rejecting outmoded separation between disciplines within contemporary art. Codes, glitches and loops permeate the assembled constituents of the exhibition, instigating a shifting inter-connection between what is seen and heard. The title references both the International Zone setting of William S Burroughs taboo breaking 1959 novel Naked Lunch and the mysterious, dreamlike “Zone” in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker.
Interzone will be complemented by a series of live Sonic Art performances on the opening night and to coincide with June and July Late Night Art Belfast.
