Automorphosis
Harrod Blank, 2008, USA, 77 mins
FREE screening, this Sunday 31st August at 4.30pm, by very kind permission of the artist.

What if you could morph your car into a mobile work of art, and drive it down the road for all to see? What would it look like? What would the world think of you? How would you be changed?
AUTOMORPHOSIS looks into the minds and hearts of a delightful collection of eccentrics, visionaries, and just plain folks who have transformed their autos into artworks.
On a humorous and touching journey, we discover what drives the creative process for these unconventional characters. And in the end, we find that an art car has the power to change us — to alter our view of our increasingly homogeneous world.

Based on historic shipping maps and sound recordings made at the Udal Peninsula and with Donald ‘The Box’ at the Craigard Centre Lochmaddy, these reverberating drawings echo the intricate and unique topography and soundscapes of North Uist.  This weekend 30/31st August.

Robert Baldock will respond to the Sharon’s sonic contour drawings, creating a soundscape using field recordings captured above and below the waves of North Uist and North Berwick'.  This Sunday 31st September, 2-3pm.
