Event Details

Gauge is a playground of investigation into weather, water and scale. In the grand 19th-century surrounds of the Meat Market, five artists and two scientists create a contemporary Wunderkammer – a curious space of exploration into a critical concern for our time.

Experience a hands-on encounter with a beguiling array of newly-created and historical apparatus – a collective artistic response to current debate around the water cycle and the distribution of water resources. Researching the work through a year of investigative excursions, both physical and virtual, its makers have drawn on their collective reservoir of knowledge and imagination to develop these enigmatic inventions.

The wondrous result of this unique collaboration is at once an exhibition, an installation, a catalogue, a set of talks, a series of performances by both performers and audience, and a real-time-data-created work – all rebounding and resounding within Gauge’s carefully orchestrated space.

Created and Directed by: Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey
