Dir. Jonny Knox | Scotland | 2016 | 29mins | Fulldome
Direct from Glasgow’s Cryptic Nights and Edinburgh Festival comes Remote Sense, the brand new fulldome AV experience from visual artist Jonny Knox and audio from collaborator and Ecuadorian sound designer, Darien Brito.
With visual solely generated from Lidar (laser scanned) data taking, Knox draws inspiration from prehistoric artists who painted in 360 degrees. The work follows the shamanic/artistic process of entoptic phenomena, an altered state, universal, visual experience linked to the central nervous system which inspired mysterious yet familiar geometric and abstract Neolithic art.
Journeying through an Irish woodland, Hang Boi cave in Vietnam, the Scottish brutalist masterpiece St. Peter’s Seminary, Beauvais Cathedral in France, a US industrial building and a 1950s Norwegian cinema, Remote Sense is a continuous fluctuation between recognised and abstract, with the audience’s perception left to fill the ‘spaces in-between’.
Gabriel Dunne's Celestial Mechanics will be screening before Remote Sense.
Celestial Mechanics is a planetarium-based artwork installation that visualises the statistics, data, and protocols of manmade aerial technologies – a graphic display of the paths and functions of the machines hovering, flying, and drifting above our planet.
This special event is presented in partnership with the
Hobsons Bay City Council.
