SEED SALON: ART IN SPACE, postponed to November 8
Artist Anna Hill will introduce her Space Synapse System, which seeks to establish a new two-way dialogue between artistic and scientific perceptions and abstractions by installing an interactive artwork in the Columbus Module of the International Space Station (ISS). While her initial motivations for the project were the anthropological relevance to environmental and human concerns on Earth and the spiritual and poetic insight that space travel offers artists, the project has rapidly become a multi-bodied Russian doll. New and more intricate insights into life in space and the relevance of space to life on Earth are unraveling from a multitude of perspectives. To explore these, Anna works closely with engineers, scientists and governmental bodies like the European Space Agency.
Anna Hill received degrees in Fine Art Sculpture from the Saint Martin's School of Art the Royal College of Art. She has been resident in Dublin, Ireland for four years, working as artist in residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Fire Station Artists' Studios. She developed her Space Synapse Project during this time following on from her MA thesis on the relationship of mind to matter and quantum consciousness. Anna Hill remains a practicing artist and is CEO of Space Synapse Ltd, which is situated in Dublin's Digital Hub.
