Raven/Glass By RL Wilson (UK)

In Raven/Glass, R.L. Wilson unravels time and space through the lens of one particular place- via a dual-screen installation.

Sunrise and sunset illuminate the ancient and modern myths and histories, of a coastal estuary- through a reflective, reflexive and playful experience, that transcends and subverts notions of borders.

Developed during a month-long residency in Cumbria; the domestic and the universal, landscape and territorial occupation, are unpicked, abstracted then slowly re-connected- using image and sound recorded in the space itself.

Two screens act as your access point across an estuary of space; sounds slowly passing through or immersing you – reflecting a marking of the land and the marking of time – whilst appearing, paradoxically, to be of no recognisable time or place.

For this installation the audience must inhabit the space- placing your feet upon the sand and allowing the present to soak into you.

Born in the UK- Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily with moving image, sound, performance and the written word.
