Showcasing bio-art sculptures, 3D prints, installations, video, text, drawings and sound art, Catalyst Arts presents Hyperobjects, an interdisciplinary programme of exhibition and public events with local and international artists and musicians.

Audience will experience sounds of mineral and civil structure fragments dissolving through the actions of acid rain (Jez riley French); live amplified effects of electromagnetic hypersensitivity shared collectively in our modern technology (Mark Peter Wright); sonic properties of plastic, and its wider associations from the everyday to the environmental and political (Matmos); stories told from the perspectives of slime mould, our ancient life companion (Jasmin Märker); speculative world inspired by deep oceanic ecological forms and microbe-centric languages (Baum & Leahy); mesmeric projection of ‘intra-flux’ – a flow of intra-actions in biogeochemical feedback loops perpetuating across scales (Saša Spačal); Lorenz Attractor, butterfly effect visualised in the gallery space (Joey O’Gorman); and the universe clock redefined through a 64-bit computer’s sense of time (Robin Price).

Hyperobjects Exhibition and Programme is supported by Arts Council Northern Ireland. Special thanks to Art Research Matters and Platform Arts for their in-kind support.
