Seeing In The Dark

Exhibition |
Until 25th June 2022

Foyer Gallery | 26 Apr – 25 Jun | Tue – Sat 11am-4pm | Free

Peer into a cinema from the past in Seeing In The Dark, a brand new digital installation from “multimedia daredevils” (The Times) imitating the dog.

Inspired by the Cinema Memory and the Digital Archive project based at Lancaster University, Seeing In The Dark invites you to explore how cinema mimics and makes memories, as film projection, time, and the viewing experience collide in this evocative, immersive artwork.

Three hand crafted boxes stand on plinths – yet each offers a unique experience. Take a look through the peepholes for a heady glimpse of cinema days gone by.

Scale models, whirring film reels, original music compositions, echoing real voices from the archive and recorded reproductions of heritage films all come together as a ‘memory machine’, conjuring into life the whisper of a classic cinema programme projected onto a miniature screen.

A fun homage to captivating moments in cinema history and a moving reflection on the sensation of film-watching, Seeing In The Dark is a special trip to the flicks that you won’t want to miss.


Until 25th June 2022
