Sanctuary is a public art event within the Dark Sky Park of Dumfries & Galloway. This 24-hour site-specific laboratory explores privacy, identity, place and space beyond the reach of networks. Installations, radio transmissions, screenings and performance serve to create a temporary community.

The Dark Sky Park is a specially designated area that suffers from no light pollution. It is remote, beautiful and crucially for the artists also ‘electronically dark’. At the core of the event will be The Dark Outside FM, a hyper-local radio station that premieres new work and then deletes it.

Alt-w | Requiem for Edward Snowden

Requiem for Edward Snowden Album Cover

Available on vinyl, CD and download now.

This audiovisual performance piece is based around the actions and decisions of whistleblower Edward Snowden. It focuses on a number of themes relevant to life in the 21st century; loss of faith and security, the hacking of digital media, invasion of privacy and personal sacrifice.

"...beautiful reminder of what we all need to be fighting against."

Snowden revealed that we live in a world in which the privacy of our daily routines is completely compromised. Exploring the consequences through electronic sound and acoustic instrumentation, the gestures of the performers will be analysed and interact with real-time visuals.
