Configuration Space forms part of Process | Event, a series of discursive screening events presented by aemi, a Dublin-based initiative that supports and exhibits artist & experimental moving image work.
Process | Event comprises a series of collaborations between aemi and four widely acclaimed Irish artists who work with the moving image. These events are uniquely structured to give insight into the role of the artist or filmmaker as researcher, with each artist invited to select and present a screening programme that informs or reflects on ideas they are in the process of developing in relation to a new moving image work. The artists will adopt a variety of means to describe the relationship between the film works in the screening programme and their individual research processes, giving audiences the unique chance to engage with ideas that arise in the artist’s work.
Configuration Space is curated by Dennis McNulty and will take place at The Project Arts Centre on Tuesday October 30th at 6pm. As well as a screening of Charlotte Prodger’s Stoneymollan Trail, the event will include a live demonstration from Dennis McNulty as well as a number of other elements to be revealed on the night. As Dennis describes:
‘In recent years I’ve produced a number of custom display devices that combine media technologies with different physical and temporal characteristics, and sociotechnical resonances. In order to generate ‘content’ for these systems I write custom authoring software. Each authoring scheme offers different affordances based on its underlying paradigm and I’m interested in the part these play in sculpting the ‘content’. Configuration Space will hover over these ideas for a couple of hours.’
