Nearer Future

“Installations like Heather Lander’s Nearer Future are the future.” The Herald (UK)

Visual artist Heather Lander and sound artist Robert Bentall collaborate in a translucent virtual reality sculpture which shows where technology has taken us – and asks us to question where we might go next. Symmetrical webs and weaves of light build into a crystalline cathedral of light as Bentall’s ambient composition Telian (played on the traditional Swedish nyckelharpa) provides a captivating soundtrack.

“restless 3D animations of alien landscapes… combined with gorgeous Reich-like nyckelharpa… surrounding the viewer with hocketing, pulsing fragments of melody, the effect is bewitching.” The Scotsman (UK)
