Leap Second Festival 2016-2017 – One Second Residencies

Leap Second Festival 2016-2017  Saturday New Year’s Eve Dec 31 2016 23:59:60 and lasts one second until Jan 1 2017 00:00:00 (UTC).

Main & Station Nonesuch is proud to be hosting several artists for the 2016 Leap Second Festival.  For the list of artists our Past and Present Artists Page…http://hmsnonesuch.com/artists-past-present/ or visit our Leap Second Residencies page for more detailed information about the participating artists and their projects… http://hmsnonesuch.com/2016-nonesuch-leap-second-residencies/

A leap second is an extra second between :59 and :00 that is left invisible on our watches and most computer systems. It’s usually faked using one of three glitchy processes – repeat, freeze, smear – to correctly adjust clock-time to the rotation of the earth. For us it means an opportunity to intervene in the flow of time creating a virtual synapse for new connections.” For more information about the Festival…http://leapsecond.online

A Nonesuch Collaborative Residency : Lancaster, Smallwood, Waldron

Lancaster Elsewhere Exhibition 360 gel transfers on wood

This July Main & Station is delighted to welcome back artist Sydney Lancaster and geologist John Waldron, and to introduce composer Scott Smallwood to Parrsboro.

The team are collaborating on a multidisciplinary project that will “explore both the limitlessness of the tide’s ebb and flow, and the limits of human capacity to comprehend time on that immense scale”.

This summer is a 2 week Research & Development Residency, to plan and develop a new site-specific sculptural installation responding to the tidal range in the Bay of Fundy. The goal is to scout potential locations for an installation, meet with local people (potential collaborators) and get to know the area.  The team will also be learning about local materials and trying some experiments to see what might best be used for the work, a large-scale site-based sculptural installation which they hope to create and document in summer 2017.

Want to know more? Join us for an artist’s talk, a workshop or a walk…

  • Sydney Lancaster will be giving an ARTIST’S TALK at Main & Station on Wednesday, 6 July at 7pm.
  • Scott Smallwood will be giving an ARTIST’S TALK at Main & Station on Wednesday, 6 July at 8pm.
  • Take a GEL TRANSFER PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP with Sydney Lancaster…http://hmsnonesuch.com/gel-transfer-printmaking/
  • Join John Waldron for a Geology Shore Walk on Saturday 16 July, 2 – 4 pm
