A site-specific artwork commissioned by the Frequency festival for Posterngate in Lincoln. http://frequency.org.uk October 2013
Conversio re-animates an ancient space through a new medium of screen-less animation in a unique installation specifically designed for the festival, the old ruined wall of Posterngate is transformed by modern technology to become an integrated backdrop to a diasynchronic installation: an audiovisual kinetic sculpture of choreographed time. Participants are drawn into a dark, underground space to behold an orchestrated metaphorical conversation between Lincoln’s buried past and modern times. Visuals are synchronized with sounds to create a ghostly ballet of animated objects then subside to an evocative echoing emptiness.
