“Thrones and dominions” the Finn said obscurely “Yeah, there’s things out there. Ghosts, voices. Why not? Oceans had mermaids, all that shit, and we had a sea of silicon … ”

William Gibson, Count Zero (1986)

How will our present technological moment be perceived from the perspective of the future? In our anthropocentric era where evidence of human-driven climate change mounts and rumours of the coming singularity abound, can we be confident that our steady rate of scientific progress won’t suffer a rupture? What fictions will be created to fill the resultant gaps? What myths will emerge from the residue of the information age?

Lost State sets out to explore these questions using as its starting point a series of photographs shot from the imagined point of view of future archeologists exploring the technological detritus of our time. A fractured speculative narrative alludes to the circumstances and significance of this discovery and invokes memories of human-technological mourning and loss. A digitally generated film simulates this imaginary exploration in order to question how image production technologies shape our perceptions of the past and of the future.

The work aims to trouble the boundaries between various categories: the organic and the inorganic; the imagined future and the perceived past; the human and the technological; the analogue and the digital; the secular and the sacred.

LOST STATE is a collaborative mixed-media exhibition by Hugh McCabe and Suzanne Walsh consisting of photography, voice, audio and digitally generated video.

This week sees my exhibition moving down to The Workmans Club on Wellington Quay in Dublin. The Workmans is a recently opened music venue, right beside the Clarence Hotel. It’s a fabulous 160-year old building and before becoming a music venue, had a run of over 100 years as the original Dublin Workingmen’s club. They’ve done a great job of refurbishing it, keeping loads of original features intact, and as well as having an excellent live band room, it has a really nice upstairs bar with big windows looking out over the river Liffey. I’ve been talking to Karl and Karen at the Workmans for a while now about having the exhibition on display in this space and I’m really excited about it finally happening. It’s entirely fitting that the photographs should be on display in a music venue. The upstairs bar, where the exhibition will be, is open to the public each night of the week (though usually not on a Monday) from around 5pm onwards until late. So, this is one for the nightowls.
