miriam o'connor: attention seekers











































































attention seekers is a body of work which is concerned with the representation of everyday scenes, arbitrary spaces and people encountered by the photographer. while the ordinary or the everyday are habitually tied up with concepts of familiarity and routine, it is here that o’ connor discovers infinite possibilities for image making, slicing out its details which petition for attention and assimilate allure. in attention seekers, the classic trajectory of ‘photographer has camera, photographer takes pictures’ is turned on its head. here instead, subjects take on an uncertain agency of their own, discharging magnetism and appeal that is impossible for the photographer to ignore. the subjects of these images are conceived as ‘seeking out’ camera and photographer - the subjects of these images conceptualized as 'attention seekers'. teasing the viewer with ambiguous clues and mischievous impressions, the images represent a curiosity around looking and seeing and a preoccupation with certain scenes that unreservedly ‘look back’. modest or minute elements are reoccurring motifs across the series, where, time, location and horizons are regularly obscured - comparatively hazy.

miriam o’ connor was born in cork, ireland in 1973 and currently lives and works in dublin.

henrique roscoe: HOL: audio-visual (interactive) compositions



"dot, a video game with no winner"

run excerpt
stop excerpt






























dot, a videogame with no winner
this is an audiovisual performance with synchronized sounds and images, played by a 'game console' built and programmed by the artist, and controlled by retro videogame (nintendo) joysticks. the instrument is completely autonomous and works without the need of a computer, using only a projector and sound system to play its content. all images and sounds are played in real time and the public is invited to participate 'playing' part of the performance.

explanatory video about dot






"x = x (v.2011)"

using as title a ludwig wittgenstein formula, this composition deals with references, meanings and similarities. is there something that is completely identical to another? how far you can make copies without changing the original? do the copies themselves change the meaning of the original? questioning tautological concepts, the performance aims to show this relationship in sound and image. the work is performed using video-mapping techniques, creating illusions of three-dimensional depth to the viewer. on two symmetrical screens, shapes and objects are opposed, seeking to analyze, through images and sounds, the relations of equality, reality, their significance and meaning.
