Opened in 1801 the Crinan Canal in Argyll & Bute connects Loch Gilp with the Sound of Jura by providing a much shorter route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides than going around the Kintyre peninsula.

Vessels pass through fifteen locks as they navigate through the canal. ~ in the fields will take live data relating to each lock and create a kinetic parametric architectural structure in response, at the mouth of the canal in Crinan.

Charles Young

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.

The Bothy Project

The Bothy Project have commissioned new work by Torsten Lauschmann for Pig Rock Bothy at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and developed a companion work for the Travelling Gallery.

During exploratory experiments with renewable energy, Lauschmann became interested in the material and aesthetic qualities of solar panels, appropriating them as a canvas rather than an energy resource.

Dennis & Debbie Club
dennisanddebbie.club

Dennis & Debbie Club are a Glasgow-based digital art duo specialising in video-animations & installations. Convinced that within the virtual, fantasy, ideology and reality collide in the most horrifying and stunning of ways, they are not digital escapists, they just want to abandon reality.

Their newest computer generated installation re-imagines remnants of Scottish Brutalist architecture as the headquarters for an utopian movement: the NEO BRUTES – a fever dream of resurrected Modernists-gone-radicals that are now expanding into virtual reality.
