About Hipkiss & Graney:

Hipkiss & Graney are a visual arts duo from Ingot Studios, Stirchley, South Birmingham. Their highly collaborative practice explores ideas around collectivity, community and counter-movements through socially engaged workshops, large-scale interactive installations and performative outputs. Their performances discuss political and environmental issues, often involving magic realism and fictional organisations.

Sculpture proposal:

Hipkiss and Graney are designing a sculpture that projects holographic representations of university lecturers and researchers, amongst others. The design will draw from dystopian and science fiction narratives, with a soundscape to match.

The aim of this project is to create a new, hopeful and empowering narrative about the future of our planet. Through research, collaboration and kindness we can create a better future for everyone.

Collaborator on the project: Leon Trimble, Creative Technologist
