ISEA 2009: M.A.R.I.N
Preview: Thursday, 6th August 5-8pm
Exhibition continues 7th-29th August
Founded by artists Tapio Makela (Finland) and Marko Peljihan (SL/USA), M.A.R.I.N is a mobile residency programme set on board a catamaran sailboat, redesigned and equipped to be a sustainable environment for transdisciplinary research in arts, sciences and technology.
M.A.R.I.N. will host an 11 week long residency on the Irish Sea, starting from Belfast and travelling down the coast of Cumbria to Liverpool. The gallery exhibition hosted by Catalyst Arts will highlight work developed during the residency.
Ecolocated: Littoral Lives by Tapio Makela, Nigel Helyer (AU), Andreas Siagian (ID), with Audio Nomad collaborators Daniel Woo (AU) and Michael Lake (AU) will map marine ecology along the northwest coastline using sensors and a small field laboratory. Combining maritime history, interviews and a workshop offshore, the artists will create podcasts, a geo tagged web blog and an Ecolocated audio installation in 3D.
