Hans Sydow A sound installation based on stories from the present and the past, told through new media. The stories are collected in both Denmark, around the town of Sønderborg, and the UK, around Huddersfield, as part of Mytologier (see p.50). The composer, Hans Sydow, often takes the space between sound, poetry and music as a point of departure and works with language and real sounds as musical material.

This extraordinary installation presents a set of elaborate shadow plays created by Brass Art (Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneké Pettican) with sound by composer Alistair MacDonald. By projecting and inscribing a set of alter egos and uncanny doubles onto the Brontë Parsonage they reveal unseen dimensions – the in-between spaces of the physical world and the realms of the imagination. ROTO is a two-year programme of exhibitions, public events and talks at Huddersfield Art Gallery featuring the transdisciplinary work of art and design staff from the University of Huddersfield, showcasing a community of artists, designers and curators whose ideas and connective practices migrate and span artistic production, techno-design research, craft and cultural studies.
Huddersfield Art Gallery Saturday 12 October – Saturday 21 December Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm; Saturdays 10am – 4pm; Closed Sundays
