"Light Field" is an off-grid, kinetically powered participatory installation by sound artist Bill Thompson and choreographer Saffy Setohy. Made of, and activated by light, people and the sound of light. "Light Field" invites you to gather and play through simple movement instructions and sound and light objects. Visually captivating, with a subtle sound score made of the sound of light and Natural Radio, "Light Field" playfully explores philosophical and practical ideas about contrasting needs for both natural and technological light and darkness around the world. It also considers our individual and collective relationship to energy generation and consumption. The project began in the context of Artcop Scotland, Artcop21 and the Unesco Year of Light. How do we perceive and understand our part in the Light Field microcosm? How do we interact with it, and what can we learn from this interaction?
