Carbon Sugar Air
January 17, 2017 - February 28, 2017
In the online audio installation Carbon Sugar Air, Instant Places generates and broadcasts slowly evolving sound objects inspired by the natural forms and processes of lichen symbiosis. What is fascinating about lichens is their ability to adapt and thrive: they fashion collaborative partnerships in which photosynthesizing organisms generate sugars from atmospheric carbon dioxide to share with the substrate elements that give them physical form. Instant Places is comprised of Ian Birse and Laura Kavanaugh.
