Dark Garden

Dark Garden  a widescreen, four 35mm projector,  projection work was originally developed as Dark Garden: Wired in a Different Way for the Norsk Teknisk Museum in Oslo in 2011. The work attempts to reflect on and explore the world of autism based on contemporary neuroscience and conversations with scientists who are trying to understand this complex field. 


Later in 2012 Andrew developed a new audio work to accompany the piece in collaboration with sound artists Matt Grover and Steve Bailey, this piece was  re-titled and  this version of the work is known as Dark Garden: Heard with a Different Voice.


A third version, entitled Dark Garden: Told in a Different Way, includes extracts from interviews with Professor Francesca Happe and Dame Uta Frith (scientists working on autism) woven into a complex sound landscape, so the work reflects  upon issues talked about by the scientists.
