Honor Harger: The Dark Arts
SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL – THE DARK UNIVERSE Honor Harger: The Dark Arts 22 February 2013 – De Balie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands --- Artists and musicians have been active in producing some of the most powerful and persistent ideas about the possibilities of the invisible universe that surrounds us. Much as cartographers of the past worked hand- in-hand with the artists who illustrated and interpreted the new worlds they discovered, the dark universe is being mapped, visualised and sonified by artists. Honor Harger’s talk will touch on how sound artists and musicians are working with asteroseismology, plasma physics, very low frequency radio waves and the outer reaches of physics. New Zealand-born Honor Harger (UK) has a particular interest in science and technology. Besides being a curator, she is the director of Lighthouse, a digital culture agency in Brighton, UK.
