Daniel Boyd: A Darker Shade of Dark #1-4 Special Screening
Get comfy and join us for a special screening of Daniel Boyd’s A Darker Shade of Dark #1-4 at Samstag Museum. Embark on a psychedelic exploration of the mysterious and dreamlike world of astrophysics from the comfort of a bean bag! As today’s scientists embrace the challenge of understanding dark matter and our universe’s hidden history, Boyd calls us to the task of truly reconciling with the land’s Indigenous heritage, the largest part of our shared history. His absorbing four-screen projection will take you through a universe of shimmering and shifting animated dots, sound tracked by a mesmerising musical score.
