1/4 (In)valid Inferences at Paradigm Electronic Arts Festival

"An inference is valid if (and only if) the truth of all premises guarantees the truth of the conclusion." - David Hume

Meaning is frequently sought within complex and fragmentary systems. Personal and global worldviews emerge, evolve, blend and fall from favour. In a plugged-in, post-truth world, how do we decide what to believe and where do we look for clarity?

http://www.paradigmelectronicarts.co.uk/exhibitors/invalid-inferences


You are invited to submerse yourself within the shifting, illusory audiovisual patterns of (In)valid Inference and encounter moments of lucidity, ambiguity and displacement.

Dave House is an Edinburgh-based sound artist and electronic musician. His work, both for performance and exhibition, consists of polyrhythmic soundscapes built from field recordings, found sounds and synthesis. His installations explore themes of time, space and environment.

Sarah Calmus is an interdisciplinary artist who is currently based in Edinburgh, since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee in 2014. Calmus creates large-scale, immersive installations using a range of media, from glass to light and is influenced by sociological, philosophical and psychological themes.

"we are all agglomerations of quarks and electrons in a complex and fragile pattern that can perceive the beauty of the universe with visceral wonder.” *

Drawing influence from organic interaction, Echo Chambers considers the nature of action and reaction, of cause and effect. Questioning the social, political and atomical, physical reactions that occur in all realities, you are invited to partake in conversation, to participate in the multitude of realities and consider the power of incremental action.

More about the artist

Sarah Calmus is an interdisciplinary artist and creator of large-scale immersive installations, working across a multitude of mediums from glass and light, to social intervention and sound. Graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2014, Calmus has exhibited at Hidden Door for three consecutive years, as both a Selected and Invited artist. Calmus allows for, and encourages direct participation and interaction with her artwork.

For Hidden Door 2017 she will transform a space that interacts, responds and awakens to the presence of the participator.

With a heavy focus on participatory immersive installations, my work seeks to directly involve those interacting with it, providing space for an equally weighted exchange between the environment created by the artwork and the perception of the artwork by the participator. Illusory provocation and play are also commonly found elements in my work and this year’s Hidden Door piece hopes to combine these to maintain a sense of exploration and wonderment upon encountering.
