“If you want to understand the causes made in the past, look at the results as they are manifest in the present. And if you want to know what results will be manifest in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.”
What will the world be like in the future and will there be a place for humanity in it? Art & Science help us to imagine answers to these questions. Both begin in the imagination, constantly questioning what we perceive to be true and looking at the world around us with new eyes all the time.
Future Proof brings together artists who work in scientific and technological contexts to contribute additional perspectives, re-frame debates, and create paths for new thinking to emerge.
Featuring new sculptural work and prints from The Xenophon Archive, The Lab Gallery (Dublin) is opening Future Proof on Thursday 14 September. Exhibition curated by Sheena Barrett and Emer O'Boyle.
The Xenophon Project is on residency at CÚRAM this summer. CÚRAM is the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices, based at NUI Galway.
Maeve and Siobhan have been observing experiments, visiting the labs, using the equipment, discovering cutting bio-science research in progress and spending time talking to, filming and recording the Centre’s researchers: : Rachel Ronan, Eleni Chrysostomou, Dr Timothy Dubuc and Dr Siti Ismail.
These visits form part of our research and development for a new Xenophon Project installation, which has been funded by Science Foundation Ireland and commissioned by Science Gallery Dublin. It will be shown as part of their In Case of Emergency season, which runs from 13th October 2017 – 4th February 2018.
We would like to thank everyone in CÚRAM for sharing their research and their time with us and we look forward to showing this piece at Science Gallery Dublin in the autumn.
So if you put two colonies next to each other, there are two ways this can go.
See you in October!
