The Tomorrows Project (ablab + dunlop)
A commission from Scottish Screen, ‘The Tomorrows Project’ explores the national film archives for moments of progress, belief in the future, and how people reacted to the never-quite-arriving world of tomorrow. Shortlisted for a BAFTA for interactive artworks, this work was first performed at Glasgow Film Theatre with live accompaniment from the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, who subsequently repeated the feat at Manchester International Festival. It is a collaboration between Dan Norton and Gair Dunlop . Documentation of the work is shown above.
