The artwork was installed to coincide with last month's Parallel Voices series at the Siobhan Davies Studios. Curated by Carsten Nicolai, this year’s Parallel Voices series featured internationally renowned composers and musicians, choreographers and dancers, curators and scientists. The monitor ins
