The finale of a year-long digital arts programme Platform, Under the Northern Sky will be a major exhibition bringing together 13 artists from across Cumbria and the North this Spring.
The show will feature something for everyone and will take you on a journey through different spaces in Cooke’s Studios and 102 Abbey Rd. to encounter short films, photography, sound art, video projection, textiles, and large-scale interactive artworks.
Step inside a giant pinhole camera, take a strangely familiar personality test, view films exploring Cumbria archive footage, shape your own sound art piece at the randomisation station and step into ultraviolet light to encounter an underwater science experiment like you’ve never seen (or heard!) before…
Fri 1 March | 6.30–9pm
Join us for the launch of the exhibition with a special late-night event with drinks reception.
All are welcome and the evening will include a talk from special guest speakers INVISIBLE FLOCK, an interactive arts studio based in Leeds characterised by their collaborative approach and highly sensory installations. Many of the studio’s projects explore our relationship to the natural world – from Morecambe Bay to the River Kaveri, India, they have created projects globally that explore art & technology within the some of the planet’s most fascinating landscapes.
