Project Adrift: exploring the hidden world of space junk with artists Cath Le Couteur and Nick Ryan
Project Adrift is a unique meeting of art, sound and science from artists Cath Le Couteur and Nick Ryan, who have created a mechanical sound instrument ‘Machine 9’ which transforms the movement of 27,000 pieces of space debris into sound in real time.
A provocative artwork piece, Project Adrift engages with the mysteries and contradictions of space junk: a sometimes beautiful but potentially destructive museum of space exploration, hurtling above our heads.
Cath Le Couteur is a writer/director and co-founder of Shooting People, the renowned online independent filmmakers collective. Nick Ryan is an audio specialist, sound designer, composer and artist, widely recognised for his uniquely conceptual approach to creating audio experiences.
