In partnership with the Revelation Perth International Film Festival, UK artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, better known as Semiconductor, bring two of their works Brilliant Noise and Black Rain to FAC.

Semiconductor have garnered international attention for their distinctive, innovative works which push the boundaries of moving image as a visual language. They seek to extend our experience of the natural world, delving into and creating visual interpretations of unseen worlds by transforming and stitching together images of scientific data.

Brilliant Noise offers a glimpse of solar astronomy, revealing some of the sun’s finest unseen moments. The images, mostly collected from ground based observatories and satellites, are raw and grainy to showcase the energetic particles and solar wind as a rain of white noise.

Black Rain is a mesmerising moving image installation which utilises satellite data to observe the space between the sun and the earth.
