Poetics of (Outer) Space

Off-site installation
Perrott’s Folly, Waterworks Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B16 9AL
Open 12–5pm

Ikon returns to Birmingham’s historic landmark Perrott’s Folly, transforming this eighteenth century tower with a multi-channel sound installation by artist Caroline Devine. Poetics of (Outer) Space (2015) explores the natural acoustic resonances of stars and the orbits of newly discovered exoplanets – here sonified data from the NASA Kepler Mission is presented as an evolving composition.

Entry to Perrott’s Folly is free and it is located 20 minutes walk from Ikon and 5 minutes from Hagley Road. Please note the Folly is only accessible via a steep spiral staircase and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Poetics of (Outer) Space is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Leverhulme Trust. With thanks to Trident – The Social Investment Group and Trident Reach the People Charity. Presented as part of the University of Birmingham’s Arts and Science Festival (16–22 March).
