Sanctuary is a public art event within the Dark Skies 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 Skies 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.

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 21 Hawthornvale, EH6 4JT

Alt-w alumni Tommy Perman & Simon Kirby with Rob St John have made a sound installation for the new landmark tower at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Sound gathered from audio archives and specially made field recordings will rise, fall, break apart and splice back together across multiple speakers in the tower, evoking the site’s history.

Using a range of unusual production techniques derived from the tower itself, the recordings – foghorns, train whistles, gas work demolition, birdsong, construction work, wind in fishing boat sails and many more – are slowly reshaped in the piece, coalescing from their original form to something new, musical and celebratory.
