The Digital Arts and Humanities Structured PhD Programme and Environmental Humanities at TCD are pleased to welcome Dr Caitilin de Bérigny from the University of Sydney to a lunch time lecture on "Designing large-scale projection art for Architectural and Media Façades: at the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson Street, Dublin.
Dr Caitilin de Bérigny is a media artist and researcher in the Design Lab, at the University of Sydney, Australia. Her research engages technologies to engage interaction design in urban space. Caitilin has exhibited large-scale interactive installation artworks internationally in Germany at Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe; in France at the ENSBA in Paris and Marseille; in the USA at the Commencement Gallery; in Canada at McGill; in Australia at the National Gallery; Canberra Contemporary Art Space and in Berlin at the Wekstad. She has studied, lived and worked in Paris and Marseille in France, and in Seattle in the US.
In her talk, Caitilin de Berigny will examine her digital artworks InterANTARCTICA and Reefs on the Edge, creative collaborations with the Australian Antarctic Division and a Marine Biologist’s. These artworks sought to address climate change through communication and education. de Berigny will also discuss her new digital artwork Mind Paintings that used a Neuro-Sky EEG headset, to allow users to meditate and create paintings via a wireless transmission from their mind onto a 15 metre digital wall. This work and Mindful App, allow uses to create artworks, and record their mind waves in real-time. These works seek to create conscious communities through mindfulness techniques.
