Rosalind McLachlan has been selected to have her own specially curated artist’s visit at CERN through Arts@CERN, coordinated by Ariane Koek. CERN is an international organisation near Geneva whose purpose is to operate the world’s largest particle physics laboratory and highest-energy particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is expected to address some of the most fundamental questions of physics, advancing human understanding of the deepest laws of nature.

20 – 27 October 2013

Rosalind McLachlan has been selected to take part in Voices, an international artists’ residency based in Villefagnan in France for artists working with sound.

Hosted by Gigacircus Media Group in collaboration with the Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artist’s Association, the artists taking part in this residency will be working with field sound recordings, sound editing software and Pure Data. This is an opportunity to give artists time and space to make new work and to connect with other artists who use sound and technologies associated with it as part of their practice.

4 -12 August 2013

Rosalind McLachlan has been selected to take part in 95%, an international artists’ residency considering the 95% of the universe which is apparently out there but currently out of sight. This 95%, which is made up of 27% Dark Matter and 68% Dark Energy, remains mysterious even to physicists.

Can imagination and creativity help us make sense of the inexplicable, or create the inexplicable? Is it faith that makes us believe in the intangible and if so, how can that sit comfortably with scientific thinking? Participating artists will be exploring such questions alongside physicists from Durham University.

95% is hosted by ACA in collaboration with Migrating Art Academies.
