Sonica | Nearer Future

This installation investigates the ways in which we might retain a sense of reality in a world where technology offers ever more opportunities for immersion in the virtual. Symmetrical webs and waves of light rise upward, sculpted and spun into ethereal three-dimensional structures, building an extraordinary crystalline cathedral of light.

Glasgow-based artist Heather Lander's collaboration with sonic artist Robert Bentall uses projection and sound. Bentall’s ambient work 'Telian' – played on the nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish string instrument, accompanies the installation. Lander shows us where technology has taken us – and asks us to question where we may go next.

#UNRAVEL is a new work by FOUND and Aidan Moffat completed during a residency with New Media Scotland. This collection of devices forms a reactive sound installation in which visitors can unravel the truth about a narrator’s life by playing records from his collection.

A record player then controls a series of custom musical instruments. These self-playing instruments soundtrack the story of the narrator as he recounts a memory from his life. Each record represents a different memory, but they sound different every time they are played.
