Event description

Description

In this talk, Oron Catts will present projects developed at SymbioticA since the year 2000 exploring the impact on and generation of sound in biological arts.

Chris Cobilis will share details of two recent projects: Ghost of Record Store (a city-based installation for the Perth Public Art Foundation) and This Is You: a conceptually driven album concerned with the emergence of user-generated content.

About the presenters

Oron Catts is an artist, researcher and curator whose pioneering work with the Tissue Culture and Art Project which he established in 1996 is considered a leading biological art project. In 2000 he co-founded SymbioticA, an artistic research centre housed within the School of Human Sciences at The University of Western Australia.

Chris Cobilis is a sound maker living and working in Perth. His 20 years toiling as an improviser and playing in bands has informed an ad hoc practice taking in conceptual composition, installation and original music for film, dance and theatre. Cobilis has performed internationally since 2006 and in 2012 undertook an Asialink Arts residency in Taiwan. Since 2011 he has been the administrator of SymbioticA, which has helped shape his current thinking when approaching each new project.
