Synthetic Ecology: Midnight Notes
2 September 2017
This summer we’re delighted to welcome back Synthetic Ecology (SE) as our artist in residence. SE will explore and interrogate the conceptual framework of the nighttime in our urgent eco-political crisis; seeking new pathways for adjusting our eyes and making sense of the dark.
Using research based from the radical US journal Midnight Notes and histories of cinema, SE will examine the night in reflection to crisis capitalism and use ONCA as an improvised space for artist development & collaborative learning. SE artists taking part in the residency include Sam Williams, Lou Lou Sainsbury, Lydia Heath, George Harding, Korallia Stergides, Kris Lock and Jo Sweeney.
Midnight Notes // Saturday 2 September, 11:30am – 11pm FREE
Join the artists for a day & night of free workshops, talks, film screenings, performance and sound art curated by SE founder Lou Lou Sainsbury; exploring the night through sonic wandering, unexpected encounters, non-human meetings and ventures into the unknown. With a selection of established and emerging artists.
Synthetic Ecology (SE) is a free artist-run research platform devoted to screening artists’ moving image and developing collaborative & experimental learning spaces, founded in 2017 by Lou Lou Sainsbury.
