Boundary Work, 12th-27th November 2010, Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork.
Boundary Work is the first in a series of exhibitions designed to facilitate a survey of work that operates in the space between art and science and as such aims to encourage a dialogue between the sub-disciplines of these fields. The exhibition therefore is a representation of work that treads the boundary between art & design and science and an invitation to participate was extended to artists, designers, and researchers in practices particularly relating to science and/or technology.

Co-Cinema is a ten minute interactive movie experience that involved three sequences from Jacques Tati films – ‘Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot’, ‘Mon Oncle’ and ‘Playtime’. The work was exhibited during the Atmosphere programme at Inspace, Edinburgh, which ran parallel with the Edinburgh Film Festival. The cinema screen was cut up into 40 pieces, each piece corresponding to a seat in the audience. Each person sitting in the audience could ‘flip’ their movie segment to one of three different film sequences by scanning one of three QR codes that are located next to their seat with their smartphone.
The experience began with one cohesive image, but as members of the audience ‘flipped’ their own parts, it became broken up as 40 people tried to watch three movies at once.
Developed with the support of New Media Scotland, Inspace and the University of Edinburgh.
