‘Distant Voices’ by Mark Parry is a new light and sound installation consisting of a series of ‘wormholes’ (theoretical short cuts in space/time through which we can reach far off places in the universe, parallel universes and maybe the past and the future).
As we peer into the seemingly infinite depth of light glowing from each portal, which has briefly become visible in the fabric of our world, we hear voices and messages from other times and places, close by or light years distant, telling us about their world.
