Semiconductor

Semiconductor make moving image works which reveal our physical world in flux; cities in motion, shifting landscapes and systems in chaos. Since 1999 UK artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt have worked with digital animation to transcend the constraints of time, scale and natural forces, they explore the world beyond human experience questioning our very existence. Central to these works is the role of sound, which becomes synonymous with the image, as it creates, controls and deciphers it; exploring resonance, through the natural order of things. Their work has been exhibited extensively in a wide variety and festivals and museums all over the world, including the Venice Biennale. Additionally, they have been involved in research and experimentation at several cultural and research institutes in Europe and the US. Semiconductor are based in Brighton, UK.
