Visual Art

"Back to the Light: Together" by Malcolm Innes

Friday 29 March / 7pm - 9pm / Hay's Dock

Malcolm Innes has been commissioned for our Remembering Together project to deliver his idea of "Back to the Light", which is an innovative art installation proposal designed to foster collective experiences of remembrance and reflection.

Through multimedia elements like sound, light, and projection mapping, this installation aims to offer a unique sensory experience that engages audiences visually and emotionally. The project will consist of two related elements, “Together” and “Apart”.

"Together” will be a live participatory outdoor event to be held from 7pm - 9pm at Hay's Dock in Lerwick on the 29th March 2024. This interactive projection, sound and music event will encourage passersby to pause and participate in shared acts of remembering. Visitors can interact with the installation, contributing their movements and actions to enhance the collective experience.
