From 26 June to 7 July, on the front lawn of Queen Mary's Queens' Building in Mile End, a participatory and sensory installation transmits memories gathered from across the world. The interaction of sound, reflections and changing light becomes a metaphor for the dance that involves the present we are, the past we contain and the future we are creating.
Once Upon Us is a composite art project by Immuto collective in collaboration with sound artist Alessandro Baldessari, choreographer Riccardo Buscarini, Professor Vardhman Rakyan and Queen Mary University of London.
Inspired by the latest medical research on how our environment influences our genetic expression and how memories could move across generations through DNA coding, Once Upon Us launches as part of the London Festival of Architecture of June 2019 and explores the blurring boundaries of our individuality across space and time.
Where and when do we start? Where and when do we end? Are the boundaries of who we are really as defined in time and space as we think?
