Frontiers in Retreat: Edge Effects
Scottish Sculpture Workshop presents Edge Effects; a programme of workshops, walks, film and performance that explores the complex co-dependencies between ecological, social, economic, and political phenomena.
Edge Effects maps out artistic processes developed in response to seven international residency sites across Europe through Frontiers in Retreat and brings them together with wider artists practices to ask: What multiple forms of knowledge, discourse, and models of action would construct a viable future for humans and other forms of life? What kinds of boundaries should be dismantled, so that change in the direction of an ecologically sustainable future could be possible?

Edge Effects: Breakdown Break Down – Two day workshop in Deep Listening
By Brett Bloom and Ximena Alarcón
27 & 28 July 2017
This intensive Deep Listening workshop invites participants to imagine and immerse themselves into a post fossil fuel Scotland. Over two days you will undertake a range of sonic meditations, body energy exercises and dream work, in order to awaken unexpected connections between creatures, the environment and ourselves.
Devised by Brett Bloom and guided by certified Deep Listening practitioner Ximena Alarcon group exercises will explore the balance between inner and outer environments attempting to dissolve dualities, create empathy and amplify perceptual human possibilities in order to empower present and future actions.
Deep Listening is a practice and philosophy developed by the composer Pauline Oliveros that is informed by expanding the range of audible forms beyond ordinary sound perceptions in daily life. The practice of Deep Listening is intended to heighten awareness of sound, silence and sounding.
