Time Capsule: LightNight After Party at Constellations
This year marks the 8th edition of LightNight in Liverpool. This time round LightNight explores the theme of Time with over 100 free events for all ages; the past, present and future. It looks at the effect on our memory, and the world we live in, as well as the influence of time on art, scientific discovery and philosophy.
Produced by local social enterprise Open Culture, this year’s festival promises another jam packed programme full of special events including large-scale light projections, performance, workshops, exhibitions and much more.
The main event is alway free but all proceeds from the after party go towards supporting LightNight 2018.
Enter Constellations via the Time Capsule scanning booth and see your image evolve into a digital memory bank played out across a bespoke AV installation, degrading and morphing during the course of the show. Finish off your festival with this hedonistic horological mash-up; a fitting soiree to bring down the curtain on an incredible evening.
A live future-Polaroid / AV installation meets club project, presented by artist Sam Wiehl and soundtracked by the indomitable Andy Votel (Finders Keepers), with support from Bitowski (FAUX QUEENS)
The Paper Moon Print Studio are holding screen printing workshops giving you the chance to take a look at their facilities in the Laylines Studio in Constellations. From5pm there will be live demonstrations and the chance for you to have a go.
The main event space will be transformed into a LightNight theatre, Beats Per Minute is a performance created by third year LIPA student based on the idea of the ‘ticking clock’ of life. Enter the bodyclock of these 20-30 year olds to see their perception of time and how it is affected by the world around us. Performances at19:30, 20:00 & 20:30.
