Of Fragile Things

Audio-Visual Full Dome Project

Of Fragile Things explores a complex world inhabited by interconnected, abstract structures, that fluctuate ambiguously in scale between the micro and macro.

Originally commissioned for the dome ceiling at Silent Green for their Future Soundscapes Festival 2019, this piece takes the form of an audio-visual journey weaving together dark soundscapes from recordings of electromagnetic fields, singing ice-scapes and a chorus of lost voices together with a bright and glistening visual world that explores natural and super-natural environments.

Of Fragile Things continues the artists ongoing investigations into the multiple, intricate and fragile connections between living and non-living systems.  It brings together both sound and video created by the artist as she explores the co-creation of audio and visual in her practice.

This piece grew out of research, thinking and conversation around invisible systems and forces both natural and man-made, highlighted in speculative climate fiction The Overstory by Richard Powers and The Camille Stories by Donna Haraway, the proliferation of and unforeseen effects of electromagnetic fields and the theoretical writings of William Connolley.
