The Boundaries Between Us Endure

The Boundaries Between Us Endure takes you amongst sound and sculptures on the factory floor to a soundtrack of electronic music and live harp, as the space takes on new dimensions with projected visuals and lighting design. Drawing inspiration from the industrialisation of survival and its legacies, rites of passage and contemporary ceremony, The Boundaries Between Us Endure sees the collaborating artists expanding new creative horizons in an exhilarating blend of music, performance, sculpture, light and sound framed within the histories of the National Sculpture Factory itself. 

An Experimental music theatre piece, the work is expressed in surround sound Audio,  4-channel video installation, AV performance, Sculpture and lighting design. Live audio capture affecting parameters of generative visuals projection-mapped via 3x projectors and fed to a system of 12x LED strips via ArtNet.
