Whiteplane 2 by Alex Bradley and Charles Poulet

BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art South Shore Road, Gateshead on Thursday 20 - Sunday 30 January 2005

Preview, party and live event: 8pm, Thursday 20 January 2005

Whiteplane 2 is an installation using quadrophonic sound and light emitting diode technology to create a unique, immersive experience. Whiteplane 2 creates an unwalled room of changing light hovering in a dark void between two horizontal planes, one situated at ground level, the other suspended three metres above. Standing between the planes, the audience will be enveloped within tonal sweeps of light and colour, as the sound moves around them; inhabiting a 'space in-between' whose shifting edges are defined only by light, sound and the audience within.

Researched and produced over the last eighteen months, Alex Bradley and Charles Poulet have worked with spectral, optical and acoustic theories to create an environment that subverts the usual relationships between physical and sensory spatial awareness. By removing the hard walls around the space, the audience can enter into a dialogue with light and sound itself - beautiful, disorienting and instinctive.

Following a six week residency, Whiteplane 2 will premier at Baltic in January 2005, before touring to Bristol's Inbetween Time Festival of Live Art and Intrigue, in October 2005.

An Arnolfini commission, produced by Arnolfini in association with amino and Baltic. Financially supported by Arts Council England and the Performing Rights Society Foundation.
