The exhibition opens at 12.00 noon with a reactive installation by our Artist in Residence, Brian Mackern. Entitled Storm of Santa Rosa, the installation is based on Brian’s research on radioelectric noises and radio interferences caused by an iconic storm that occurs in the Rio de la Plata. The installation reacts to the presence of visitors, reconverting them into the storm itself.
At 6.30, you can join us for a wine reception in the FACT foyer, and then at 7.00 Brian will be doing a Santa Rosa storm concert. In this concert, using body contact, hardware hacking, electrostatic waves, radio signals and radiotelegraphy, Brian manipulates the sound atmosphere, recreating the electrostatic presence of the storm.
We’ll be tweeting about the exhibition as it happens, so please do keep an eye on #citiesindialogue for the latest about all the events!
