Vidéo-Concert : Worlds in the Making - Groupe Semiconductor

Saturday 04th October 2014 from 22h00 to 23h00
Salle 3 / IPGP

To celebrate the "Nuit Blanche" [Dawn till Dusk arts event] the festival is putting on a  Video Concert with a performance by the group Semi-conductor -two British artists: Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt.

In recent years, their work has put them in a unique position on the contemporary art scene. Their installations and performances combine video art, scientific research and digital technology. . Semi-conductor spent several months observing scientists at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratory, the Mineral Sciences Laboratory and the Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands. Their observations and research inspired works like Black Rain, combining the images and sounds of the path of a satellite in space, and Brilliant Noise that explores the extraordinary energy of the sun through impressive archive images.
