A new immersive outdoor sculptural experience running from 23-26 November 2016 is to be launched in George Square Gardens.
Audiences will be invited to wander through the transformed city centre gardens to encounter characters projected on to trees, smoke and mist. Images will crawl over the landscape and around the visitors.
The Influence Machine is produced by American artist Tony Oursler, and it uses state-of-the-art digital projection techniques to capture the haunting atmosphere of magic lanterns, Victorian light shows, camera obscura and parlour tricks. It draws widely on art history, parapsychology, and neuroscience. Oursler is inspired by the way people use new technologies to try to communicate with the dead.
