Sensoria festival, SIAD Gallery,
Sheffield, UK
3–15 May 2011

Shown at the annual Sensoria Festival in Sheffield, Diaspora Magnet was a soundscape installation created by Illustrious Company alongside visual projections by graphic designer Malcolm Garrett RDI.

Part of the Echo City Project, Diaspora Magnet presented Sheffield as an exemplar of industrial cities everywhere, with the city acting as a vehicle to address ideas surrounding urban life and social dynamics.

The visuals created by Garrett ran on an infomatic 15 minute loop and were accompanied by Ware’s 3D sound installation.

In partnership with Arts Council England, Screen Yorkshire, UK Film Council, The University of Sheffield, Yamaha, The Musicians Union, Sound on Sound, Sheffield Music City.
