Multidisciplinary artists DRIFT transform The Shed with sound, movement, and film. Journey through a series of interconnected installations – from multitudes of shimmering lights that traverse the gallery like glowing seeds caught in the wind to massive concrete blocks, or Drifters, that magically float on air – exploring the universal desire to seek out connection and the power to be found in relinquishing control when embracing change.
