Unravelling the Thread: Public tour with the Dublin Art and Technology Association


Join artist Kerry Guinan and collaborators Frank Prendergast (Space Forms), Aisling Murray, Anthony O’Connor, Emily Waszak and Sai Mulpuru with Dublin Art & Technology Association (DATA) for a public tour of The Red Thread. Starting from the networked technologies and infrastructures that the project is built on, this tour will consider the live installation within the wider techno-political contexts that it, and its performers are situated in, such as labour automation, global supply chains, surveillance capitalism, digital anthropology, and Dublin and Bengaluru’s status as so-called ‘Silicon’ tech hubs of their respective regions.


This is a free event but capacity is limited, arrive in a timely fashion to avoid disappointment.


7 - 7.30pm Tuesday 10 May 2022

Variations On A Sewing Machine: Sound performance by Natalia Beylis & Michelle Doyle


Following her Variations On A Sewing Machine EP (2021), which was recorded on a domestic sewing machine using contact microphones and effects pedals, musician and sound artist Natalia Beylis was commissioned by Kerry Guinan to develop a graphic score in response to The Red Thread. In this reflective event marking the end of the show’s 6-day run, Beylis will be joined by artist and musician Michelle Doyle to perform the score on the industrial sewing machines in The Red Thread installation.


Please note that The Red Thread will not be live during this performance: catch it before it ends at 1.30pm that day.
