Residency Description
The 2scottS will lead a Learning Lab using video, sound and art as a way to explore the shifting interconnections that make up our world. By using the trains that exist on the other side of the wall here at PlatteForum as a metaphor for the containers that we all are, they will create a framework to explore issues of community, social patterns and connections, chance and change.

They propose a finished installation that will incorporate work from students, themselves, sculptural pieces and an interactive environment that will take the gallery visitor on a journey outside of normal linear experience.

By using TVs, video projection, surveillance cameras, sound systems and sculpture, their installation will serve as a frame work to explore the physical and mental landscape that PlatteForum inhabits – from the real to the virtual; the past to the future; the interior to the exterior.
