Message from the Skies: Calton Hill projections.

January 11 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Message from the Skies is part of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations. Six internationally acclaimed writers pen their love letters to Europe in this large art installation held in venues across Edinburgh.

For Message from the Skies Calton Hill, Bulgarian born, Highland based travel writer Kapka Kassabova writes about the origins of Europa, touching on deep time, mythology and legend. She explores how Europe is more permanent and enduring than detailed political ideas that dominate our everyday world. Founded by Susanna Murphy and Cristina Spiteri, Bright Side Studios is creating images from Kapka’s writing which come into focus before dissolving into nothing. Pippa Murphy has composed a score which fuses Eastern Polyphony, Gaelic chanting and cinematic soundscapes.

Duration: Approx. 16mins
