Now in its third year at Sonica, Picture Window is an ongoing public art projection project that transforms windows into screens after dark. For 2015, Picture Window focuses on the concept of song and its role and use within societies and culture.
Picture Window’s format subverts the expected, transforming the fabric of the city into a platform for new media art. Expanding the possible interpretations of a building’s structure and use, Picture Window allows the audience to reimagine the city and their place within it.

Emerging Artist Space: Joanna Peace
Programmed through open call, Picture Window has partnered with Market Gallery for Sonica 2015 to host an emerging Scottish based artist to realise and present new work within this artist-run gallery setting.
Picture Window was founded with a commitment to creating opportunities for Scotland’s vibrant community of early career artists and are delighted to partner with Market Gallery, offering a platform for the production and showcase of new work in response to the theme of song and music, and its role and use within societies and culture.
