Sonica: The New Alps

January 21, 2016 in by mwhiteside


Event Details


A kinetic installation of mechanical sculptures that imagines a disorienting futuristic landscape populated by robotic inhabitants, Robbie Thomson’s Cryptic commission for Sonica 2015 is inspired by the monumental interventions humans have made on the planet in activities such as mining and damming – creating manufactured landscapes that exist out with geological time.

“The New Alps felt disconcerting, alienating, as though humans were intruding on a world where machines were in control, but it also had a touch of the fairground – surrounded by Thomson’s gizmos, you always wondered which one was going to spurt into life next.” theartsdesk
