Embers and the Giants

21 October 2020

‘Embers and the Giants’ from Canadian media artist Kelly Richardson makes its UK premiere, a short film that explores human intervention through thousands of tiny drones mimicking a natural spectacle, suggesting a time when we will need to amplify nature in order to convince the public of its worth.

Together with ‘The Tides Within Us’ by Marshmallow Laser Feast and Rachel Goodyear’s ‘Limina’, they form Human Nature.


This internationally significant new media art exhibition was explored notions of separation between humans, our environment and technology. With quiet contemplation, we take a journey into the ecosystem of our own lives and experiences. Revealing how our bodies are hardwired, synchronised and inextricably linked to nature.
