First Day of the Edinburgh College of Art Graduate Show

Didn’t have much time today so I’ve only been around the sculpture show as yet. A good year. The standout exhibit of the ones I’ve seen was Deborah Marshall’s ‘Casting in retrograde – a diptych’.

You hear the music first –┬áit sounds like Latin church music but it isn’t. So it seems like there must be an art work in the room. But you have to piece it together like a detective mystery.

Casting in retrograde – a diptych. Deborah Marshalls


 
Casting in retrograde – a diptych. By Deborah Marshall

The music is an excerpt from Dido’s Lament, played in reverse as a six part canon.
She has a lovely blog that explains some of her thought process here.
