This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation, and not the subject of rubbishing by tabloid newspapers" Admiral Lord Hill-Norton Former Chief of Defence Staff, UK "A few insiders know the truth . . . and are studying the bodies that have been discovered," Dr Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon.

This exhibition is an exploration of the readers' sense and nonsense. You see a photo, it 'appears' portentous, to represent Something of Reality, but does it really - or is it all bollocks and pig's bathwater? I've gathered a series of photos that I hope will make you think about the true significance of the symbolism used and what makes an image (or indeed anything) break the limitations of the media and to resonate with you. new art in the basement sub cultural radikal arts productions present PAULA SIGLEY JOE PLANT JOE PUBLIC at gallerys on SCRAP KILLAR road movies / paulasigleyfoundry1.jpg

TUESDAY 13 NOVEMBER 05 open keyboard PIANO NIGHT incidental music by unknown players new art in the vaults The amplified reality headset (arh) Portalists Inigo Wilkins and Adam Hobbs will present the arh in the vaults of the foundry again, from 13th Dec, demonstrating the second-generation prototype for an audio-visual recording and playback device that concerns the body’s orientation in space. The arh places you in a series of affective environments that constitute a kind of time travel. Immersion is encouraged through the stimulation of the proprioceptive faculty. Opposed to the pre-designed possibilities of the corporate virtual reality headset (vrh) the amplified reality headset (arh) is an instrument for the multiplication of potential. We cannot describe the wearer of the arh as a user, for this machine is not used in the way that we can ride a bicycle for example, or, more pertinently a vrh – the arh is not a one-way utility - the words player or performer are closer, but they do little to impart the sense that you are also the subject or victim of the apparatus; in some ways you become what is called a horse in the worship of the orishas – and you are ridden by the spirit of a series of affective sensory-perceptive events that constitute a kind of possession - the act of wearing the arh catalyses a feedback mechanism where the biological participant is best described by the word vector. 051213.arh.jpg The vector, having inserted its human recording head into the helmet, will see both live and recorded images of the world about it on an LCD screen magnified by a fresnel lens to the virtual size of over a square meter and viewed at close proximity. It will hear a corresponding sequence of past and present worlds on stereo amplified headphones and also through the vibrations of a bass speaker situated beneath the vector. Planned additions to the initial prototype are a miniature camera that records the motion of the arh and its vector as they move through an environment. This information will then be projected back on to the fresh vector, bathing the parasitic couple in a ghostly trace of its time travelling interior. The foundry have given us this opportunity to use the vaults as a workshop for ten days or more, so there are a number of ideas in the pipeline which will be work in progress, such as collaborations with musicians and the possibility of using green screen and video mixer to displace the audience itself into different time-spaces.

Although all the artists come from a different cultural background what unites them is the very fact that they share a common experience of displacement and a continuous search for their identity: national or personal. The artwork produced by these artists ranges from photography, performance, video, painting and drawing, covering in other words the whole spectrum of contemporary art. As the name implies the main goal of this group is to bring to the forefront art that is unique, defies categorisation, is contemporary and involves a discourse between the artists’ works and the viewer. Clash Art aims to introduce to a wide public high quality work from all corners of the earth without any prejudice towards any ethnic or cultural groups. For Foundry, we will develop our main subjects such as cultural identity, displacement, memory and issues of globalisation by creating a live installation. This includes live paintings, drawings and video projection along with interactive performance by artists themselves. The viewer will be able to see the work develop and grow into the space. CLASH ART MEMBERS Eleonor Bedlow email: My cultural background is an important aspect of my identity and my work. I am half English half Irish but spent most of my childhood in Japan. There are strong references to maps or fragmentation in my work. These are references brought into my work with a need to explore the notion of living in between cultures. I am interested in exploring both the negative aspects of cultural confusion. Evan when I am exploring subjects such as displacement there is still a sense of celebration of being able to understand more then one culture. I like to take a simple object or image and change it’s status from what it would normally be in the world. Land and roads or chairs and planes tame on personalities and become characters. Eunji Kim email: Our dreams, our deepest emotions, our nightmares, they are going beyond a body of languages and locations. The sadness, the happiness, the coldness, the foolishness, the nothingness, the fullness, the craziness, the emptiness of my days is yours too. I see them linger, sigh, laugh, caress around me and have to portray this ‘inner landscapes’ of us which will be holding its hands together somewhere in this world. There are too many 'I don't knows’ and we're walking on the road of tomorrows no one knows. I want to know, I want to understand, I want to see, I want to touch - you, me, him, her, us, them and yesterdays, todays and tomorrows of our times. That's why I’m here and make films. Michael Parlamas email: My painting is aiming at eradicating stereotypes and elevating a superlative virtue the energy for creativity, spontaneity, playfulness and enthusiasm for life itself. I strongly believe in a global unity where there is no “mine” and “yours”, but the appraisal for the beautiful and the remarkable surpassing the boundaries of every country acquiring a global recognition. I am of the opinion that in this way many problems are overcome, creativity is enhanced for the artist since he or she transcends any taboos and advances in the creation of an artistic work without any inhibitions.
