Broadcasts from the Edge of the Horizon – The Beacon



A pilgrimage, a performance and a 12 hour slow radio broadcast, devised in collaboration with artists Dawn Scarfe and Phil Smith, volunteers and the general public as part of Art Week Exeter 2017.

As modern transport and communication continuously evolve to eliminate the in-between, I wonder how this changes our world-view. People still have bodies, and human imagination remains connected to those bodies, and to where we are allowed and willing to take them. We made a start reflecting on this and other open questions by looking at the ways Exeter’s city dwellers relate to the surrounding countryside, exploring the discrepancies of the horizon as a distant dream and a journey experienced. A TOPOS project.
