Points of Departure

6 Feb 2020

Against the backdrop of night, take a walk through the atmospheric industrial landscape of Shoreham Port and be dazzled by otherworldly sound and light installations. Wondrous machines emerge from the darkness to a strange but haunting effect - monumental kinetic sculptures that seemingly defy gravity as they spin and whirl in an endless dynamic dance. 

In this one-of-a-kind event you are treated to a viewing of Ray Lee's spectacular sculptures, brought together for the first time. Towering metal tripods sing out a hypnotic siren call, while red lights whirl in mesmerising orbits of colour. A series of giant towers holding suspended speaker cones gradually swing higher and higher until each arm soars up over the heads of the audience - ringing with electronic tones that create a transfixing harmony of pulsing drones. 

The structures sing an alien song, a sci-fi symphony that points to a future departure to other worlds and another universe.
