Semiconductor

Semiconductor is made up of UK artists Ruth JARMAN and Joe GERHARDT. Over the past twenty-five years of collaboration they have become known for a unique and innovative body of moving image works, sculptures and installations which explore the material nature of our physical world and how we experience it through the lenses of science and technology. Their works bring into tangible experience that which is outside of what is humanly perceivable, confronting the viewer with information which is ordinarily outside of a human scale, both of time and space. Solo exhibitions include House of Electronic Arts, Basel, Switzerland; City Gallery, Wellington, New Zealand; FACT, Liverpool, UK; Axiom Art and Science Gallery, Tokyo, Japan; National Center of Contemporary Arts, Santiago, Chile. They have undertaken intensive research at a number of prestigious scientific institutions including CERN, Geneva, Switzerland and The NASA Space Sciences Laboratories UC Berkeley, California. Awards include 20Hz Golden Gate Award for New Visions, at San Francisco International Film Festival; Art and Science Award, Ann Arbor Film Festival, USA and the first Samsung New Media Award, UK. Their works are held in both public and private collections.
