Location: The Joy Gallery at RedSpace, 2 Rutland Place, Dublin 1, Ireland.
Presenters:Tim O’Donnell – Arduinome
The arduinome is an OSC controller using Arduino to clone a monome. A community has sprung up around building these endorsed by the monome creator (he is less impressed by other electronics companies robbing his idea). As a group we ordered PCBs and components online, assembled, troubleshooted and finally played with the monomes once they were built.
Anne Maree Barry
Anne Maree Barry (1979) is a film artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Her experimental short film Covered Road was the winner of Best Irish Short at the Darklight Film Festival, Dublin. Rialto Twirlers at JDIFF is Barry’s first documentary short film. Young people growing up in a marginalised community in inner city Dublin, Rialto, are exposed to the social problems that accompany poverty. They find a space for themselves through creatively engaging in majorette groups, a traditional feature of the social landscape in working-class areas. In a swirl of pom-poms, twirling batons, sparkles and feathers, Rialto Twirlers captures a secret moment of unity and beauty as a dance troop rehearse their routine for the final time before a national majorette competition. Not as acrobatic as their American cheer leader counterparts or as military as their marching bands founders, the Rialto Twirlers are a creative fusion of hard graft, skill and energy that is associated with our pluralistic age, in which anything is possible.
Trembling Veil of Bones (300) Director Matthew Talbot-Kelly’s animated short film The Trembling Veil of Bones employs a combination of live action and computer-generated imagery to fashion a densely layered world of intrigue and revelation. In a veiled city, cluttered and thick with memento mori, old letters, fading photographs and dust, mail is still delivered by hand, albeit by an automated centaur. While enormous robots parade their dead through the streets, deep inside the mechanized guts of this unpredictable metropolis, even more mysterious emissaries are hard at work.
