What makes a bridge? The increasing complexity and sophistication of the physical bridge taught us the mechanics of tension, compression, suspension, balance and connection. Over time these physical laws and interactions have evolved into increasingly abstract ideas, further transformed, expressed and communicated through metaphor. The idea of a bridge exemplifies the search for connectivity in both the physical and metaphysical worlds and through the realm of our imagination. This exhibition containing video, sound and electronic media art looks at the interplays between the physicality of a familiar structure, its haunting sonic characteristics and a rich network of metaphoric and symbolic connections.
