RESONATE – AN 8-DAY VISUAL ART INSTALLATION AT THE DIGITAL HUB FROM 9/11/18

RESONATE is a three-screen video installation by Riona Long delving into the experiences and influences of a group of electronic music producers and DJs. It’s open from the 9th to 17th of November, excl. Sunday 11th Nov. at The Digital Hub.

According to Riona Long, electronic music, due to its highly digitised nature, is more tightly integrated into our everyday digital lives than any other creative form. It’s machinic and robotic aesthetic means it is more commonly associated with alienating notions of technology as opposed to more human ones involving emotional connection and community.

 

RESONATE’s interviews, live footage and digital graphics explore how human values like emotion and a sense of community thrive within the resolutely artificial and synthetically generated art-form of electronic music. By doing so, it suggests that electronic music culture provides a marker for how we handle contemporary anxieties around the machine.
