Cryptic Nights
Watchtower & Origins

Thu 7 March 2019

An immersive sonic double-bill from English and Italian artists who have recently relocated to Scotland.

Combining surround sound and projection, installation Watchtower takes the symbol of a lighthouse to explore the shifting gaze of modern-day surveillance. Using ocean rhythms to symbolise this ever-present unpredictability and light as a tool of control, Kin (London) highlights efforts to manipulate our behaviour and encourage conformity. Stepping back to ancient times, Origins aims to regain freedom from technology to reveal ancient human archetypes and ideals that are becoming all but lost. Building tension between structured drones, steady drums and continuously changing and glitching visuals, Silent Chaos (Rome) create a dark, dream-like environment where we discover a growing disconnect with nature and our true selves.
