Invisible Dust at the British Science Festival in Newcastle
On Saturday 7th September the launch took place of Adam Chodzko’s performance ‘Rising‘ in Tyneside Cinema and Mariele Neudecker’s exhibition ‘For Now We See‘ at the Church of St Thomas the Martyr. Co-commissioned with Great North Run Culture, ‘Rising’ had its first live performance with actress Gretchen Egolf at the Tyneside Cinema. You can still listen to ‘Rising’ here, which was also broadcast on basic.fm to Great North Run runners from 11 am on Sunday 15th September for 24 hours.
Mariele Neudecker has been collaborating with with marine biologist Professor Alex Rogers from Oxford University to reveal some of the world’s most isolated ocean environments through video installations in this Gothic church. The launch of the exhibition was followed by a family art and science workshop on Sunday, which got together artists and scientist, young and even younger enthusiasts for a day of learning, making, exploring and having fun on both the deep sea and flooding.
