Galway 2020 Project Aerial/Sparks will make an appearance on the Celtic Explorer as part of Sea Fest.
Aerial/Spark’s artist, Louise Manifold, has created a film about her journey on the explorer from Galway to Newfoundland in 2017 as a part of the project. The film, entitled The Crossing, features singer Adrian Crowley, and is shot on Super 8. There will also be an opportunity to meet with Louise on board.
Aerial/Sparks is a project created by Louise Manifold that aims to create a series of standalone artworks for radio broadcast, inspired by the concept of traditional broadcasting and the use of sonar and other technology for data collection. The interdisciplinary art project for radio broadcast will include up to 12 artists, writers and musicians from Ireland and Europe.
