Following its successful exhibition at Fort du Bruissin's Centre d'Art Contemporain in Francheville, Lyon, visual artist Robbie Thomson presents his immersive sculptural work, "The New Alps".


A kinetic installation of mechanical sculptures that imagines a disorienting futuristic landscape populated by robotic inhabitants. This Cryptic commission for Sonica 2015 is inspired by the monumental interventions humans have made on the planet in activities such as mining and damming - creating manufactured landscapes that exist out of geological time.
