Hack Circus: THIS IS REALITYevent • 15 Mar 2014
Drink beer, listen to interesting talks and performances, learn about magic, music and machines and meet interesting people. Hack Circus issue 2 will be launched at the event. What makes you so sure youʼre not just a brain in a jar? How do you magic up a ﬁctional world with real technology? Why do we like tiny things?
Speakers and performers addressing these sorts of themes on the night will include:
Heather Fenoughty. This composer and sound designer will be discussing site-speciﬁc theatre.
Ralph Harrington. Transport historian Ralph will explore how model railways conjure up alternate realities.
Alex McLean and Kate Sicchio will be collaborating on a live coding/dance performance.
Sinead McDonald. The Dublin-based artist will be talking about fake realities caused by the camera, and other misleading technologies.
Henry Cooke. The creative developer of bots with personality will be asking why we need to see people where no people exist.
Chris Farnell. The writer and sci-ﬁ aﬁcionado will question how we can be sure of our own reality.
