Volunteers - Distorted Constellations

21 May 2019

We are looking for volunteers to invigilate and install Distorted Constellations at Lighthouse during the Brighton Festival, 29 April - 19 May.

Presented in partnership with Brighton Festival, Distorted Constellations is a multi-sensory exhibition that uses sound, projections and holograms to immerse the audience in the imagined landscape of the artist’s brain.

The work is inspired by Ebizie’s rare neurological disorder Visual Snow, which causes visual distortions such as flickering dots, auras and glowing lines. The audience will experience a mythical version of the disorder, entering an alternate Afrofuturist (a black perspective on the politics and culture of science fiction and technology) reality, inspired by research into the neuroscience of perception and drawing on rituals of African origin.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of performances.
