Squidsoup: A light work in progress
Please note: this event took place in Dec 2013
Following the huge success of their captivating Submergence installation, Award-winning international artists Squidsoup have continued in residence in Bristol Temple Quarter's The Eye, using the same hardware system to explore digital materiality, decay, granularity and movement in physical space.
As a special Festive treat, for two nights only, Watershed and Squidsoup are inviting audiences to step back into 8,064 dynamic points of light to experience this new work in progress.
Like Submergence, visitors will walk into a virtual world where pixels on a screen are replaced by thousands of points of light floating in space. Shapes and images will slowly appear, wrap around and dissolve, suggesting form, presence and movement within physical space.
This work is in The Eye, beautifully placed overlooking the water on Glass Wharf, just over the bridge from the lively Creative Common and Temple Meads Station (for a map see here).
Go by boat: Jump on a Bristol Ferry which will take you all the way from the Cascade Steps outside Watershed to Temple Quay and then it's just a short stroll to The Eye.
FREE ENTRY - entry is from 16:00 - 22:00 on both days.
A lyrical exploration of the pleasures and pains of communication, Lilting tells the story of a Cambodian Chinese mother mourning the death of her son and connecting with his boyfriend, Richard (Ben Wishaw).
Two Days, One Night
Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne return with another deeply affecting social drama, this time combining their humanistic heart with the tautness and pace of a ticking-clock thriller.
