“A psychedelic, hallucinatory atmosphere… you can leave the LSD at home.” Dagblad van het Noorden
Robots, kinetic sculptures, modified technology and real live sea monkeys populate Robbie Thomson’s new work, inspired by the farthest extent of our perceptions. Infinite Lives turns Kings Place into a science laboratory, as the weird and fascinating objects come to life with special lighting effects, video footage and an irresistible electronic beat, experimenting with the limits of our own consciousness.
“A dense, multi-faceted work combining music, visuals, sculpture and lighting to create an astonishing, one of a kind multi-sensory journey.” The Skinny
