As part of the Cupar Arts Eden 2019 festival two Fife based artists were commissioned to create an artwork housed in the Corn Exchange building for the duration of the event.
Bearing the title SKELF – a sculptural performance space crafted in wood and glass, providing a stage for musicians and artistes.
The Sonic Chamber
The installation included an interactive ‘Sonic Chamber’ where members of the public were invited to enter and immerse themselves in colour and sound. The walls of the chamber were designed to touch activate a selection of recordings taken in the community. The artists worked with local community groups to gather and process a bank of recordings which provide the activated sounds.
SKELF and The Sonic Chamber were conceived and designed by Mark Small and Carl E. Smyth who have collaborated on this project.They have a wide creative skills base including sound production and set construction.
Both artists are alumni of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
