Since 2017 Trebuchet has hosted an ongoing series of events capturing art in action.
Bringing together leading artists, scientists, and activists in front of a fractious audience the aim of the Trebuchet is to increase the community of active thinkers by providing a forum for discussion.
Archives of these talks can be found as podcasts on our Trebuchet Spreaker page here.
Season 3: Gunmakers Jan 2020
Trebuchet investigates Portraits
Prof. Bobby Acharya “The Dark Sectors of the Universe”
The “Light Sector” is all the luminous matter and has an extremely rich and elegant structure. Models of extra dimensions of space suggest a similar picture for the dark sectors and suggest that dark matter also has a rich structure.
Charlie Schaffer, Awarded First Prize at the BP Portrait Award 2019
Schaffer’s work, considered portraits, are vibrant action paintings that describe more than the visual representation of the sitter, they encapsulate a process. They’ve also won numerous awards.
Luciana Haill works with brainwave signals (Neurofeedback), Augmented Reality and Strobe lights, exploring consciousness & expressing the results through digital media, performance, sound & drawings. Through her artworks you encounter altered states, dreaming & ‘Hypnagogia’ commonly experienced at the onset of sleep & day-dreaming, in generative textured soundscapes & data visualisations.
