Kings Place, London, London, United Kingdom
Visual artist Heather Lander and sound artist Robert Bentall collaborate in a translucent virtual reality sculpture which shows where technology has taken us – and asks us to question where we might go next. Symmetrical webs and weaves of light build into a crystalline cathedral of light as Bentall’s ambient composition Telian (played on the traditional Swedish nyckelharpa) provides a captivating soundtrack.
“Restless 3D animations of alien landscapes… combined with gorgeous Reich-like nyckelharpa… surrounding the viewer with hocketing, pulsing fragments of melody, the effect is bewitching.” The Scotsman (UK)
