an immersive sensory installation by:
edda jones & russell burden.
comprising of sound and discreetly back-lit imagery in a completely blacked out space.

private view:
6pm summer equinox 21st June 2012.
the substation project space,
margate, kent.
public access:
22nd – 24th June, 3pm – 8pm.

viewers enter through a light trap not seeing the interior dimensions of the space. some peoples senses may eventually become more comfortable with the darkness but the show inverts the normal gallery experience, allowing individuals to confront themselves in rarely experienced ways.

images 1-5 shot in low light:

6. gallery lights on
7. recording at the limbo substation
8. russell burden, artists flyer.
