c3 Signal – A magnet for projectiles late at night

c3 Projects with Jon Butt + Arini Byng
Publication : Hannah Donnelly + Katie Paine
3-15 November 2017

Presented in association with Constance ARI, c3 will be presenting work as part of the 2017 Hobiennale. This project brings together a large group of artist-run initiatives from across Australia and New Zealand, each curating an exhibition as part of the festival program. HB17 is showcasing the work of around 100 emerging and mid-career artists. It is a free festival that will occupy a range of existing galleries and unusual sites across Hobart. The extensive festival program includes exhibition openings, artist talks, music and performances. HOBIENNALE is the first festival of its kind in Australia and will continue bi-annually.

c3 Signal is both curatorial structure and an artwork. Internet-enabled LED beacons are situated at c3 and Kelly’s Garden and provide physical/conceptual context for a site responsive installation, performance work and a written publication that links c3 to SAC. c3 Signal is both curatorial structure and an artwork. Internet-enabled LED beacons are situated at c3 and Kelly’s Garden and remain connected at all times. Sensors in each space activate the system with your presence and send signals between each light. If you are in one space, you set off the sensor, send a signal and the light will pulse at the other space. You are both in one space and the other space, or more simply c3 and SAC become one place. As a curatorial structure, the project acts as conduit for ideas transmitted between each site. The idea is that whilst the project is running, we are linked in a number of physical and conceptual ways. The viewer becomes present in both spaces simultaneously, transcending time/space. The galleries are linked together to become one space and the abstract data of the internet process becomes a bridge or conduit for the signal.

For c3 Signal – A magnet for projectiles late at night, Jon Butt will work with artist Arini Byng and writers Hannah Donnelly and Katie Paine to work with the unseen and mysterious forces of Kelly’s Garden at SAC.
