Darkness Visible is an immersive cinematic and performance event exploring darkness, perception and poetic narrative.

After spending a week alone in his studio living and drawing in complete darkness, artist Sam Winston was so fascinated and inspired that he began to wonder what would happen if he introduced other creative practitioners to a similar experience. What disappears when the conventional visual field is no longer available and what arises in its place? What breaks down and what is exposed? What happens in the ‘return’ to full sensory engagement and what imprints from blackout remain?

The event features Winston’s investigations and insights in collaboration with the photographer Andy Sewell, composer Jamie Perera and film-maker Anna Price and culminates in live readings by poets Emily Berry, Kayo Chingonyi and George Szirtes. It will draw us temporarily into total obscurity and offer some reflections and interpretations on the potent but frequently overlooked world beyond vision. (The evening incorporates periods of complete blackout and silence.)
