As part of the Cupar Arts Eden 2019 festival two Fife based artists have been commissioned to create an artwork housed in the Corn Exchange building for the duration of the event.
Bearing the title SKELF it is a sculptural performance space crafted in wood and glass, providing a stage for musicians and artistes. The installation includes an interactive ‘Sonic Chamber’ where members of the public are invited to enter and immerse themselves in colour and sound. The walls of the chamber are designed to touch activate a selection of recordings taken in the community. The audience member will explore the liberty of touching an artwork while composing a unique collection of sounds. The artists have worked with local community groups to gather and process a bank of recordings which provide the activated sounds.
SKELF was conceived and designed by Mark Small and Carl E. Smyth who have collaborated on this project.
They have a wide creative skills base including sound production and set construction.
Both artists are alumni of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
