The Artist Observatory
Friday 29th April | 11.30am – 12.30pm
Armagh Observatory | College Hill, Armagh BT61 9DG
Lucy McKenna discussed her time at the Armagh Observatory & Planetarium as an artist in residence, the research she undertook and some of the ideas that have developed since:
“The main outcome of the residency for me has been the idea of reviving a dormant scientific method of capturing data in the form of an image. I’ve been thinking about why particular methods of information collection, like this, change or disappear as technology develops, and what can be gained or lost in the process.”
The project has been made possible through the support of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council and the generous collaboration of the staff at Armagh Observatory and Planetarium.
