Over the last few months, a group of musicians, sound designers, visual and projection artists, filmmakers, lighting designers and performance artists have all come together to experiment with technology in their creative approaches, celebrating the power of play.
They have collaborated on a new audiovisual exhibition of playful, nature-inspired sculptures which we are proud to bring to Hidden Door 2023.
The installation is a playful meadow of responsive sound-making sculptures, that uses recycled and upcycled materials as the structural foundation of the work. The installation aims to evoke a sense of wonder, curiosity, and respect for the natural world, and invites us to reflect on our relationship with nature, the impact of our actions on the environment, and the urgent need to protect and preserve it.
The installation will be available to explore throughout Hidden Door 2023, from 31 May – 4 June.
