Large-Scale AV Art Installation
Commissioned by Medway Council & Liverpool Culture
TOGETHER is a spectacular touring art installation. The piece is a huge pavilion-like structure in which audiences can feel part of a collaborative experience. Using video, light and sound to create a space in which people connect with their environment and others around them.
By working closely with and collaborating with the communities that host TOGETHER, we collate memories, archives, stories and data. We then weave this into an ever moving narrative about the people and place in which TOGETHER is displayed. This narrative and experience is wholly unique to that location. It's giant mirrored rings take on its surroundings whilst the words travelling through rings represent the communities who host it. The words are displayed on the inner face of the three rings, intertwined with mesmeric visuals and accompanied by an ethereal soundscape completely encompassing those inside, and evoking the feeling of being held together as one.
Words and stories are collected through a range of methods which are chosen with the host - these have included: collaboration with local artists, collation of archival material, generative poetry, digital and in-person workshops.
Past Collaborators include:
Medway City of Culture - words contributed by: Barry Fentiman Hall, Dan Simpson Linda Brinklow, Kelly Phoenix, Jo Eden and many others with the support of IDEAS TEST
DANCE TOGETHER x Chibuku - archive material by legendary club night Chibuku and generative poetry by artist Susannah Pettigrew
