Alastair Duncan: Interactive Tapestry Weaving

Friday 7th Jun 2024 — Sunday 14th Jul 2024, The Gallery, The Base

In this exhibition, artist Alastair Duncan brings craft and technology together in a series of inspiring interactive tapestries.

Working across fibre, photography and sound, Duncan explores the themes of landscape, architecture, conflict, communication and interconnection in this exhibition that celebrates the textural and rhythmic aspects of weaving.

Visitors are encouraged to interact with and explore the artwork, which can be activated physically through touch or proximity. This triggers sensors to play soundscapes, some of which evoke the Welsh countryside while others play manipulated dialogue that acts as ghost-like traces of interactions.

Visit Alastair Duncan's website to learn more about the artist, or even better, join us on Thursday 27 June when he will be visiting The Base to give a fascinating talk!
