Light Rhythms is an exhibition about sound, light and line that is activated by families and young people of all ages.
In this space you will encounter artworks to view, alongside artworks and resources that you can interact with to make your own colour and sound installations. We invite you to join us in considering how lines, sound, colour, textures and light influence our experience of space.
Stop and listen, consider how you can change the sound in the room. Use your body to create your own Patrick Scott inspired image. Can you find two Ghost Ships that glow in the dark here in these rooms, perhaps in an unexpected place?
Over the course of the exhibition we are running a series of Saturday drop-in workshops called Sound Bites, whereby different artists will add a new interactive element to the exhibition and test it out live with visitors. This means that Light Rhythms will evolve and change, so drop in, take part and remember to come again as you will find something new each time!
This exhibition has been inspired by concurrent and upcoming exhibitions by artists Patrick Scott, Haroon Mirza and the site-specific neon work Line Writing by Vong Phaophanit, and we hope that you will visit these exhibitions alongside Light Rhythms.
Due to its popularity, Light Rhythms will be re-installed and extended for the Easter school holidays with interactive works by Karl Burke and Russell Hart, Fionnuala Conway and Mark Linnane and our immersive ‘light room’ remaining.

Light Rhythms Events
Sound Bites – a series of artist interventions
Saturdays, 12.00pm – 4.00pm
(Please note that on the dates below Light Rhythms will open at 12pm to allow time for set up)
Saturday 8 March - Sven Anderson
What happens if you record people and voices, including your own in a museum – a space that is traditionally silent? Join sound artist Sven Anderson to use your voice around IMMA and experiment with sound, (aural) texture and chance. Bring your mobile phone to participate, or borrow one of ours. These multi-layered recordings will be combined after the event and left as an installation in Light Rhythms for future visitors!
Saturday 22 March - Slavek Kwi
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest in a gallery? What happens to how we experience a space if it is wrapped in paper? If you are curious to find out more, then pop in to join artist Slavek Kwi as we will hide and reveal the objects in our Project Spaces and beyond.
Saturday 5 April - Karl Burke
Join artist Karl Burke, whose sound artwork Compositions 1-36 (created in collaboration with Russell Hart) is in our Light Rhythms exhibition, to explore listening and to work together to create your own sound installation.

Pádraic E. Moore (writer and independent curator) leads an informal and speculative discussion on the art-historical context of Patrick Scott’s work.
