Border-Zone: Dreams, Memories & Realities Light, sound and performance installation Event

Grid Arts and MK Museum are excited to announce Border-Zone, a light, sound and performance installation designed especially for Milton Keynes Museum’s new galleries. This multi-disciplinary arts installation will be open to the public between 7-10 February 2019 with a programme of different events taking place over these 4 days. The installations and events will be open to all ages and are free to attend but tickets are required.

ABOUT Border-Zone

Border-Zone is a space where sounds and music blend and collide in 360 degrees with images transforming the space around the viewer. This installation will create immersive experiences, where the viewer is surrounded and fully engaged by moving and shifting images and soundscapes. Images, selected to evoke memories while creating new experiences, include playful seaside vistas that dissolve into doorways leading into spaces we can never enter, overlaid with voices.

On 8th and 9th February, there will also be live performances set within the space, adding further dimensions to the experience. Performers include:

Motus Dance, keyboard artists Gabrielle Baldocci and Sally Halsey and soprano Jessica Thayer.

ABOUT the event Border-Zone

is designed to evoke dreams, memories and thoughts which sharpen our sense of reality. Usually our sense of reality is an internal and private affair, but we live in a world where ‘alternative realities’ are increasingly shared publicly promoted as truth by some politicians. Public access to the installation will be:

  • 7th Feb from 6pm to 8pm to view the creative responses of Stantonbury International School students to the installation,
  • 8th Feb from 1pm to 8pm with live performances taking place between 5pm and 8pm
  • 9th Feb from 1pm to 8pm with live performances taking place between 2:30pm and 5pm
  • 10th Feb from 1pm to 6pm. Meet the artist day.


Border-Zone is a Grid Arts Production – Creative Producer Thomas D Gray Associate Artists: Simon Bradford, Anna Berry, Gabriele Baldocci, Sally Halsey, Jessica Thayer, MOTUS Dance and Bill Bartolotta.
