Outlands network announces third tour

Kyoka and Grischa Lichtenberger go on tour with immersive environment Drift, developed by wetgenes and Fuse Art Space

The third Outlands commission has been announced, with Raster artists Kyoka and Grisha Lichtenberger touring cities across the UK with Drift. Part club, part installation, Drift is an audiovisual environment described by the network as an “intoxicating, hyper-sensory experience”. Motion and audio sensors will monitor the room, from which the visuals take cues, creating a feedback loop between audience and performance.

The tour will take place between 7–17 November in Milton Keynes, Cambridge, Birmingham, London, Bexhill, Bradford, Manchester, Bristol and Plymouth. Full information can be found on the Outlands website.

Drift was developed in collaboration by technologists wetgenes and Fuse Art Space. wetgenes will be facilitating workshops prior to the UK tour (information TBC). Support comes from Numbers affiliates YTAC.
