Inspired by the Technicolor utopias of children's television, Over The Rainbow invites the viewer into a shape-shifting world inhabited by cuddly monsters, faceless clones and gruesome pop divas. Shot entirely using green-screen the film presents a synthetic environment, part toy model, part computer generated landscape, which explores a dark, comedic parody of the fairytale, video game and horror movie genres.

Collective has invited artists to devise a series of walks around the area of Calton Hill and the City Observatory. The material will be available to download as an audio file.
Ruth Ewan - August 2013
For the first in the series, Ruth will create a new work which considers the Political Martyrs' Monument on Calton Hill. Ruth is interested in the dissemination and control of radical ideas. Her work ‘A Jukebox of People Trying to Change The World’, a collection of politically engaged songs, exemplifies her method of researching and assembling strands of history, and presenting them in ways that highlight their continued relevance and potential for change.
