With the suppprt of NHS Lothian's Art & Therapeutic Design programme, the Alt-w LAB is hosting four mentoring residencies this winter. Glasgow-based Sven Werner is a artist and filmmaker who has worked in partnership with the Society of Scottish Artists to create a new installation.

Presented at the Royal Scottish Academy, with an accompanying audio work, Observer Cinema is the story of a man who, to his own surprise, finds he has a peculiar gift: he is able to recognise and inhabit the blind angles of people’s attention so that he becomes to all eyes invisible.

From the 8th July 2016, daily 10am-5pm.
National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh

Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.

Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.
