With narration by Alasdair Hankinsson, sound artists Tim Shaw & Sébastien Piquemal will re-score the film in this special live performance that explores digital mobile technology for surround sound diffusion. Ensure you bring your devices fully charged, and keep them switched on.

An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure is designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.
The models were combined into an installation that presented a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the Travelling Gallery were behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

Cycle 06 Alt-w Production Award -

From the 8th July 2016, daily 10am-5pm.
National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh
Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.
Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.
