Atmosphere

For details of our next Atmosphere click here.

Atmosphere is our most popular research programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theaters from the 1920s and 30s.

Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.

Atmosphere | Reface

Reface

POSTPONED RSVP
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of the British Film Institute’s Film Feels: Curious season we have set Ukrainian developers Reface a grand challenge. Could they take a classic film and reface the extras with the faces of the audience watching, and in real time too? On this night, in extraordinary times, we find out.

Based in Edinburgh’s twin city of Kyiv, Reface will use an artificial intelligence to map facial data acquired at Inspace onto the original actor’s bodies. As for the film title, we’re keeping it suitably top secret. For extra deep fakery, the optional dress code is 1963 Paris. Et voilà, a world’s first.

An Lanntair, Kenneth St, Stornoway HS1 2DS

In this map of the stars directly above An Lanntair, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.
