An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.

The models are combined into an installation that presents a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the exhibition can also stand behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

Coinciding with a sister installation at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem, these dynamic interpretations of Paisley pattern are inspired by both the iconic design and the prized freshwater pearl mussel that used to thrive in the White Cart river running through Paisley town. Each unique, generative form has been specially seeded for Aberdeen.

23rd-24th September 2017, noon to noon. RSVP
Murray's Monument, A712, Dumfries & Galloway.

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.

Atmosphere | The Illusionist

The Illusionist

Tuesday 6th June 2017, 7pm. RSVP
Auchrannie Resort, Brodick, Isle of Arran KA27 8BZ

Our Atmosphere screening of Sylvain Chomet's 2010 feature film is the first ever expanded cinema experience on board the Screen Machine. We've added a layer of sensory experiences to bring the film to life – from Paris in 1959 to the tastes and smells of a Scottish island.

A love-letter to Scotland which tells the story of a French vaudeville magician who, finding himself out of work, tries his luck in Britain. Finally reaching a remote Scottish island, he meets a young woman who believes that he really can do magic. Devoted to him, she follows him to Edinburgh.
