If there’s one thing that science fiction has taught us, it is that in space, no-one can hear you scream – but what does space itself actually sound like?
For Trajectory, Williams has gathered sounds and data from space recorded by long wave radio and spacecraft satellites to create a unique audio-visual project.
The multi-speaker audio installation in enhanced by multi-screen projections and still images, immersing visitors in the artist’s perspective of Earth, space, current research and the future challenges humanity faces.
The production will develop over two days and will be supported by a full programme of events, including lectures on the history of spacecraft trajectory and what space had done for us.
Visitors will also have an exclusive opportunity to explore City Scan, a pollution radar developed by Dr Roland Leigh. Using a 3D gaming headset, visitors can view levels of air pollution across a city in 3D.
- Open November 8 and 9 2013, 10am-5pm. Admission free. Book online. Visit embracearts.co.uk for full details. Follow the centre on Twitter @EmbraceArts.
