Dorkbot at MCA
– Energies sensed, scavenged, harvested, experienced

Dorkbot Sydney (“people doing strange things with electricity”) presents a special event at the MCA to coincide with the Energies: Haines & Hinterding exhibition.

Join artists Paul Greedy, Emily Morandini, Pia van Gelder and Peter Blamey as they discuss their explorations and experiences in making works that embrace a range of energies: acoustic, chemical, electromagnetic, psychic and beyond.

Hear how these artists are engaging with energies in the arts stretching from the tangible to the intangible, via the sonic, therapeutic, geophysical and astronomical.

Thu 16 July, 6.30 – 8pm
Free, bookings essential
MCA Level 2, Veolia Lecture Theatre

Spaces limited, book early for this popular event.
Artist bios:

Emily Morandini is a Sydney based media artist, educator, and researcher. Touching upon histories of technology, her work seeks to reimagine intersections between nature, craft, and electronics. Currently she is a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design.

Paul Greedy is a Sydney based artist whose practice engages with the phenomenal world and the complexities of physical dynamics. Through works that mediate basic phenomena such as light, sound, air pressure, temperature etc, Greedy creates situations that seek to expand our understanding of how energy manifests and shapes our impressions of the world.

Pia van Gelder is an artist and researcher who often makes instruments that generate video and sound for performances or interactive installations. Recently, Pia’s work has been influenced by historical inquiries into esoteric understandings of the body and energy.

Peter Blamey is an artist, musician and researcher. His work explores themes of sound, energy, and the reimagining of technology through questioning accepted notions of connectivity, variability and use. His practice is typically grass roots, establishing interactions between disparate everyday technologies in order to produce performances, artworks and installations that investigate the relationships between people, technologies and their environments
