Magnetic Movie. © Semiconductor 2007

Semiconductor’s Ruth Jarman & Joseph Gerhardt were commissioned by the Animate Project for Channel Four to make a film during their residency at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley. The result is a visually stunning approach to documentary film, intertwining recordings of scientists discussing complex concepts along with Superconductor’s graphic interpretations as a means to enhance meaning.

“Through our desire to find meaning we began to devise our own imaginary interpretations of what was expressed to try and find a way to comprehend and picture this world that exists beyond our sensory perceptions. Relying on the scientists verbal descriptions we have articulated our own response, visually representing magnetic fields as ever changing geometries within the setting of the space sciences lab.”
