Silicon Synapse *11th - 15th December*

Event Information

Event description


Silicon Synapse is an immersive Virtual Reality and psycho-acoustic experience that will take you on a simulated journey into the personified mind of ‘Technology’. Listening to the inner dialogue of ‘Technology’s’ mind as it replays both sides of a lovers’ quarrel. ‘Technology’ and its life partner ‘Nature’ argue about the sustainability of their relationship and their future as a couple. Silicon Synapse explores evolution, genetic engineering and transhumanism. Each viewer is engulfed by a conscious dream-like realm, as they travel through intense listening and visual experiences.

Silicon Synapse is an artwork created by Irish Artist AlanJames Burns, made in collaboration with writer Sue Rainsford, Artist Jason Dunne and Composer Michael Riordan.

Silicon Synapse is jointly commissioned by Fingal County Council Arts Office and the European Commission’s SciArt programme and is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and Cavan Arts Office.
