TLRH | The Covid Catalyst: Reimagining our Creative Future

Thursday, 20 August 2020, 6:30 – 7:30pm

TLRH | The Covid Catalyst: Reimagining our Creative Future

The Art + Science Reading Group is a virtual group where researchers, artists, thinkers, and revolutionaries come to share ideas. Organised by PhD candidates Autumn Brown (Science Gallery Dublin and School of Education) and Amelia McConville (School of English and Institute of Neuroscience) and supported by Science Gallery Dublin and the Trinity Long Room Hub, the series explores the ways art and science shape one another and society. 
This month we’re chatting with vocalist, composer, and researcher Síobhra Quinlan about the ways in which the Covid-19 pandemic may help us re-imagine and ethically reform our relationship with online creative spaces. During quarantine how many of us sought out inspiration, comfort, or escape in a live streamed concert, a gallery tour, or other social creative space? What have these experiences done for us, or communicated to technology companies? How can a post-human lens help us re-imagine, and create the ethical technological futures we want? With a special focus on two projects at Nokia Bell Labs, E.A.T Now, Other Voices Courage, and We Speak music, we’ll chat about these questions and more! 
Síobhra Quinlan is an Irish vocalist, composer, producer, and researcher. Whilst doing an M. Phil in Music Composition at Trinity College in 2016/2017, Síobhra researched and revived the forgotten works of female singer-composers from 17C Italy which she then performed at The National Gallery of Ireland with David Adams, and at The National Concert Hall as part of International Women’s Day with Solomiya Maksymiv. Síobhra is also involved with outreach projects, working with artists currently living in Direct Provision through the mediums of music, drama & art. Her research will explore posthuman-art and intimacy as architects of our digital existence.
