We will be launching our new commission Slow Motion Car Crash by Jonathan Schipper as part of the AV Festival on the 1st March.

Schipper’s work provides an alternative way of experiencing the world by slowing down physical events to almost imperceptible movement.  This slow motion car crash sculpture is actually moving at a speed of 7mm per hour in a choreographed collision.  With a dramatic inevitability that reflects our own mortality, over the course of the Festival month, the car is eventually destroyed.

Co-commissioned by Locus+ and AV Festival.
