UK artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, better known as Semiconductor, bring two of their works Brilliant Noise and Black Rain to FAC.

Semiconductor have garnered international attention for their distinctive, innovative works which push the boundaries of moving image as a visual language. They seek to extend our experience of the natural world, delving into and creating visual interpretations of unseen worlds by transforming and stitching together images of scientific data.


Friday 13 Jul from 6:30pm

In partnership with Revelation Film Festival, FAC will host an artist talk and panel discussion featuring Semiconductor’s Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt (UK). Join us to hear about their innovative practice and the intersection of science and art. The evening will be hosted by SymbioticA Director Oron Catts. Free entry.

Brilliant Noise offers a glimpse of solar astronomy, revealing some of the sun’s finest unseen moments. The images, mostly collected from ground based observatories and satellites, are raw and grainy to showcase the energetic particles and solar wind as a rain of white noise.

Black Rain is a mesmerising moving image installation which utilises satellite data to observe the space between the sun and the earth.

Curator: Jack Sargeant – Program Director, Revelation Perth International Film Festival.
