The Room is Full of Weapons

Tara McGinn

Description

The Room is Full of Weapons was developed in response to research conducted in the extensive slide library of educational art images at the Belfast School of Art in 2018 -19. The work combined analogue slideshow images and text from my own fragmented writing practice to create a simulation of an art school lecture, placing the changing slide sounds to mimic the presence of an unseen projector, the acting source of light.
