Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

The chronoscope is designed to not only tell the time but also convey how, why and what time really is. As each slender slither of time bursts into being, the chronoscope gauges the exact nature of that particular moment and visualises it. (It is no wonder that the chronoscope sometimes runs a little slow.)

Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

A contemporary play on the ‘Carta Marina,’ the late middle age marine map created in 1532 by the Swedish theologist and cartographer Olaus Magnus. In this work Leishman is interested in playing with the speculative freedom of the so-called ‘dark ages’ and how this resonates today in our post-truth, image saturated and polarized culture(s).

Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, Edinburgh EH2 2EL

Motifs from the realm of neoclassical architecture dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are brought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.

Cycle 13 Alt-w Production Award - Ray Interactive
Sam Healy & Brendan McCarthy

18th Feb to 1st April 2023. FREE
An Lanntair, Kenneth St, Stornoway HS1 2DS

In this map of the stars directly above An Lanntair, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.

Alt-w | Paisley Pearls

Museum for Islamic Art, HaPalmach St 2, Jerusalem

These dynamic interpretations of Paisley pattern are inspired by both the iconic design and the prized freshwater pearl mussel that used to thrive in the White Cart river running through Paisley town. Each unique, generative form has been specially seeded for Jerusalem.
