Pick up a smartphone, put on your headphones and start to explore. As you walk you hear a stunning electronic score by Chris Clark. Find one of the metal fixing points and hear a fragment of an interview with Anne as she talks about her missing brother. Fixing Point traces the legacy of the conflict in Northern Ireland. What lies hidden and where are we silent?

To take part in Fixing Point, visitors will walk around the Penryn Campus of Falmouth University wearing headphones connected to a smartphone. The screen shows a map of the area and audio recordings are hidden in the environment. Each recording is also marked by a metal fixing point which is screwed into the ground leaving a galvanised steel ring visible above the surface.

Fixing Point is a work by Blast Theory, a pioneering artist group creating interactive art to explore social and political questions, placing audience members at the centre of work. Please note: Not suitable for children under the age of 14.

This work is part of the Games as {Performing} Arts festival, which runs 7-15 June at AMATA.
