Over a four-day period in mid-March, the main gallery at SPACE will host a functioning improvised Faraday cage designed and built by Yuri Pattison.
OPENING EVENT: Thursday March 15th
/// YBT: SOLID STATE II (a touchable hologram. bass sermon.)
+ FELICITA live ///
Doors 6pm. Performances 8-till late
A Faraday cage is an enclosure capable of blocking external static and non-static electric fields. Invented in 1836 by English scientist Michael Faraday, contemporary applications (more accurately ‘mutations’) of the cage continue to present themselves today. Indeed, in addition to facilitating shoplifters around the world (foil lined ‘booster’ bags allowing thieves to bypass certain RFID-tagged items), or securing MRI scan rooms from potentially dangerous RF signals, a secured Faraday cage is capable of blocking out everyday transmissions including WIFI, 3G, TV and Radio.
As part of Faraday Cage, Pattison has invited a number of artists to occupy the cage in order to respond to ideas relating to workspace, networks and online/offline cultures. The cage will function as a temporary studio space during the project, containing basic furniture, digital archive and standard office printer.
Participants include Your Body is a Temple, Richard Sides, Matthew Drage & Ben Vickers, Kosmas/Keller and Paul B. Davis. Each has been invited for a daylong residency culminating in four public presentations.*
