This weeks show has been very popular and the Monday night launch was well attended with lovely evening sun shining in on the exhibits and visitors.
The exhibition was initiated and developed by John Lynch a 1st year Interactive Arts student. John says in his exhibition proposal:
“…the past is History and cannot be recreated. You cannot recreate even a conversation you had ten minutes before, since that time many things will have changed, including yourself. When does the past begin? When does History start? I am suggesting after approx. 15 seconds. For those 15 seconds we are living in the MOMENT. This exhibition will be about that time frame.”
The exhibition was an interesting one to curate as many of the exhibits remained somewhat mysterious until the last moment. In the end curatorial decisions were somewhat in the moment! We were looking at blank walls for the first part of the set up, trying to imagine the exhibits on the basis of rough ideas coming from the artists. This seems to have worked out fine and the resulting show is, we think, a set of coherent moments.
