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.
