A live performance connecting London and the island of Papay Westray as part of the Papay Gyro Nights Festival, Orkney.
The stars that burn in the night sky were used as an ancient guide to navigation. This live telematic drawing performance will contrast ancient and modern forms as it travels via telecommunications satellites at the speed of light between Papa Westray and London.
A camera in Papa Westray will point at the night sky and transmit video images and atmospheric sound live through SKYPE to London. These sounds and images will be projected in a gallery space and the group will make spontaneous drawings as they chart the night sky in Papa Westray.
A camera in London records the live drawings as they are created and a live video feed will be sent back to Papa Westray via SKYPE, where it will be projected onto a wall in front of festival attendees.
