The Imagining of Things (2013)
Audio visual installation. 3 projections and soundscape, 6 photographs
Brass Art presented the first ‘chapter’ of Shadow Worlds | Writers’ Rooms as an installation with accompanying electro-acoustic composition. Echoing the projected shadow plays, captured and surreal sounds move around the gallery; voices collide and intersect, move out of reach, re-appear and disappear. Alistair MacDonald has created a soundscape that mirrors the digital texture of the Kinect videos yet suggests real landscapes and shifting weather conditions. The voices of the three artists whisper a secret, hidden narrative - fragmented and looping like their visual counterparts.
