Edinburgh Art Festival, Artists Talk: Yann Seznec in Conversation with Martin Parker
Tuesday 26 August 2014
18:30 to 19:30
Free entry, but please book in advance. Book tickets
Drill Hall based artist and musician Yann Seznec often uses technology as a medium to reveal natural processes that are imperceptible to the human eye or ear. In his Edinburgh Art Festival Currents he expands his interest in technology as a tool, to consider how it shapes our environment. Computer fans are now a ubiquitous technology, used to cool down machinery when we produce, consume or analyse information. Frequently discarded, the fans point to our obsession with change, as well as the realities of a global economy that make it cheaper to produce anew rather than repair.
Seznec will talk about his work, ideas and approach with composer and sound artist Martin Parker before giving a performance using the instruments specially created for Currents.
Currents is open from 31 July – 31 August 2014, free admission
