ADAPTr Events - Strange Objects / Weird Realism
"Reality is made up of nothing but substances — and they are weird substances with a taste of the uncanny about them, rather than stiff blocks of simplistic physical matter." Graham Harman
A programme of immersive and intricately constructed video and music exploring speculative environments which highlight the creative scope of the imagination in the production and representation of space. Featuring a selection of films by Peter Burr, Dave Gaskarth, Sarah Hammond and Richard Healy, plus a sound performance by composer Lee Fraser.
