Nearer Future at Edinburgh Art Festival
4 August 2017 until 28 August 2017
Institut Français d'Écosse
For Sonica 2017, Oregon-born, Glasgow-based Heather Lander has collaborated with sonic artist Robert Bentall (UK) to investigate 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.
Bentall’s ambient work Telian – played on the nyckelharpa, a traditional Swedish string instrument – is the soundtrack for Lander’s visual composition. Symmetrical webs and waves of light rise upward, sculpted and spun into ethereal three-dimensional structures, building an extraordinary crystalline cathedral of light.
Lander’s translucent virtual reality shows us where technology has taken us – and asks us to question where we may go next.
