Seven immersive artworks challenge our ideas of life, death and nature.
Mapping the journey of breath from different scientific and cultural perspectives this multisensory narrative of epic proportions uncovers the living worlds both beyond and within us, to reveal the deep and beautiful truths that lie just outside the limits of our perception.
Inviting audiences to cross the threshold and follow an expansive journey through the invisible natural world, Observations on Being brings together a series of thought-provoking and immersive audio visual art installations and soundscapes, which challenge our ideas of life and death and examine our symbiotic relationship with nature.
The ambitious works will be located across the beautiful, tree-filled spaces and buildings of Charterhouse Heritage Park - Joseph Paxton’s Grade I listed cemetery and its arboretum.
Observations on Being has been developed by Marshmallow Laser Feast in collaboration with artists James Bulley and Natan Sinigaglia and some of the extraordinary and influential scientists, writers and musicians who have inspired and informed their work, including Jon Hopkins, Suzanne Ciani, Merlin Sheldrake, David Abram, Daisy Lafarge, Hae-jin & Jacob Marshall of EMBC, Nessie Reid of the Global Environments Network (GEN) and Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Medicine MEVIS, pioneers in medical image computing.
Observations on Being was commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust and produced in partnership with York Mediale, working closely with the Friends of London Road Cemetery. It is presented in partnership with Historic Coventry Trust, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Coventry City Council.
The production is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by the Garfield Weston Foundation.
The Tides Within Us was originally co-commissioned with York Mediale, supported and presented by York Museums Trust and made in collaboration with Fraunhofer MEVIS.
