LITTORAL – new work

I am currently working on a new audio visual performance in collaboration with Canadian artist Myriam Boucher titled LITTORAL, to premiere at Mutek Montréal in August 2020.

Myriam Boucher (QC) and Kathy Hinde (UK) present LITTORAL, an audiovisual performance combining sculptural objects, sound and light. LITTORAL explores concepts concerned with rising sea levels by incorporating scientific data around coastal erosion, thermal expansion, sediment compaction, and the accelerating effects of climate change. Fusing the virtual and the real, the physical and the imaginary, they perform live with objects, field recordings, lights, lenses and water, to explore the refraction of sound and light integrated with digital abstractions and manipulations. This audiovisual piece seeks to explore boundaries and edges by inhabiting the spaces in between. LITTORAL (definition): The shore zone between high tide and low tide points.

A Cryptic MUTEK Commission supported by QC-UK Connections Programme, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Canada Council for the Arts, in association with Cove Park.
