Carsten Nicolai & The Vinyl Factory Present: Unicolor

Brewer Street Car Park

Opening 24 June – 2 August 2015

This large scale installation continues Carsten Nicolai’s fascination with the boundaries between audio and visual art forms. It is presented in the form of a wide-scale panoramic wavelengths of blue, red, green and grey through to infinity. The viewer is confronted with a visceral expanse of colour and sound that tests the limits of perception.
