‘Lamentation’ at The House of St. Barnabus

Elizabeth Still 2 copy 2

Lamentation is a arts installation going into the chapel at House of St. Barnabus in autumn 2018. Dates to be confirmed. Mailing list link below

Wearing bespoke 3D glasses, guests will enter a virtual environment in which they appear to walk through a magical field of moving stars. Their movements are tracked on-the-fly to create music built from choral phrases in Thomas Tallis’ 16th-century Lamentation.

The installation is the latest iteration of The Disinhibitor which was first developed in 2012 by Karel Bata as part of his MA research into perceptual spaces at Ravensbourne College.

The Disinhibitor is a series of site-specific installations which adapt and evolve around the opportunities offered by their locations.
In St. Barnabus’ Chapel I felt strong spiritual resonances (maybe my Catholic upbringing at work) and wanted to explore this using Tallis’ deeply reverential music. This is generated on-the-fly by a visitor’s movements, which also modulates the visuals. Guests will feel they are in an environment they themselves are creating. Which indeed they are. I’m very excited by this.”
