Tessa Farmer has created a new collaborative installation with musician David Rothenberg, currently on view at the Science Gallery in Dublin. Entitled MAGICICADA after the insect Magicicada septendecim, better known as the seventeen-year cicada, the installation captures the complex and bizarre mating ritual these bugs go through when they emerge once every seventeen years. The installation is part of the show, “Oscillator” which explores the many ways oscillations play a part in nature and our everyday lives.
