ATLAS is hosting a special screening of Thomson & Craighead‘s Belief in the unique setting of Dunvegan Castle.

Belief is a documentary artwork exploring the notion of belief through information sourced online. Starting in Skye with Dunvegan’s Fairy Flag, the two-screen installation presents a series of fragmented broadcasts about belief, all sourced from the video sharing community YouTube. A compass floor projection interacts with the montage showing where each clip originated in relation to the geographical location of the artwork. With a little help from Google Earth viewers are placed at the centre point of this cinematic data visualisation

Belief is the final work in the Flat Earth Trilogy. Supported by Creative Scotland, New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund and ATLAS Arts.

Software development for Belief by Matthew Jarvis, sound design by John Cobban and script development by Alison Craighead, Jon Thomson and Steve Rushton.
