The Marina, Banagher, 10 JULY 2022




ALL AFTERNOON

SLOW LOOKING

A School of Looking Workshop

With marine biologist Rachel O’Malley

We meet artist artist Alan Phelan who will make a fabric intervention in the Marina in his signature red, green and blue colours. These relate to the Joly screen colour photography process which was invented by Offaly native John Joly in the 1890s - one of the first colour images. Alan will talk about Joly’s contribution to science with Dr Patrick Wyse Jackson from the TCD Department of Geology where Joly also worked and discuss "How Rocks Can Save the Planet". This will be a broad ranging discussion on geological discoveries and histories that relate to climate change and art. Specifically how Joly's scientific research contributed to contemporary knowledge in the field from the minerals used in solar cells, lithium found in granite, carbon sinks, and the understanding of geological time. Consideration will also be given to the utilization of local decorative stone and its working and fabrication during the Victorian era.

Cleary and Connolly believe that learning begins with looking. Looking closely at things - for the purposes of observation and accurate documentation, or just for the simple pleasure of engaging your mind with the world - affords a deeper learning experience by fixing attention and setting up a remarkably complex and active investigation that begins with the eye and progressively engages the whole mind. The Slow Looking workshop invites you to use a range of simple viewing devices - bug boxes and magnifying glasses - to observe closely samples of biodiversity found on site, and to draw these using the materials provided, in a relaxed atmosphere conducive to conversation.

On Sunday 10 July the Eco Showboat Mayfly will dock at Banagher. You are invited to join us for this wonderful afternoon of art, workshops and talks.

River Movie will record the first expedition of the Mayfly - a series of encounters with artists, activists and scientists as we travel upriver from Limerick to Enniskillen, discovering the beauty of the Shannon and the Erne waterways, exploring scientific and artistic ideas for how we can save this environment from everything that threatens it today - pollution, invasive and endangered species, climate change… Using a 4k drone, a 4k gimbal camera, an IR camera and other devices for macro-photography and sound recording, River Movie will document a unique collaboration of art and science addressing the great problem of our time.
