Shifting Ground is a performance and installation that traverses the human and the geological, exploring the idea that all forms are temporal and metamorphic.
Media artist and performer Zoe Scoglio unites physicalised sound, interactive projection mapping, ceremonial participation and gestural choreography in a journey from the cosmic to the concrete. Made in collaboration with sound designer Nigel Brown, interaction designer Chris Heywood and prop designer Zoe Stuart. Shifting Ground looks at the impermanent and fleeting nature of our time on this earth, and our symbiotic relationship with the elements that form it.
“Scoglio’s performance is a finely cut gem, moving with perfect timing across landscapes and ideas.” – Realtime Read more
