Tim Bishop
Location: Black Room

“Sheltered” is an immersive, multi-sensory and interactive installation for one person at a time lying down inside a polar tent, that explores climate change using real-time measurement of EEG (brain wave) data from each visitor to trigger changes in recreated weather events.

Ambisonic, hydrophone and electro-magnetic recordings made across the course of 12 months at the same location inside the Arctic Circle are used to shape an installation that explores this environment from an embodied perspective.

“Sheltered”is an art and science collaboration between Lund-based artist Tim Bishop and the Climate Impacts Research Centre at Umeå University. The project is supported by Kulturbryggan and Lunds kommun, with additional support from Naturkompaniet Lund.

Tim Bishop is a performance and sound artist based in Lund, Sweden. His practice focuses on creating personal connections between artwork and audience, prompting individual and, often, emotional responses through sensory, evocative and highly aesthetic experiences. Revolving around each participant’s perceptions of themselves and the environment around them, often in a one-to-one context, Tim uses spatial audio, darkness and immersive technologies to explore knowledge of the self through our shared experiences.
