Artist duo Semiconductor are making a new moving image work for Groundwork. 'As the World Turns' questions how we experience nature through the language of science and technology, combining video footage filmed at Goonhilly Earth Station with scientific data acquired through the process of radio astronomy.

'As the World Turns' will be shown with Simon Starling's 'Black Drop', a single screen film projection that tells the story of the relationship between astronomy, photography and the beginnings of moving image technology. The Goonhilly site brings with it a sense of its own history – of achievements gained and the promise of future endeavours, and of nature and technology co-existing.

This exhibition is organised by CAST as part of the Groundwork season of international art in Cornwall from May to September 2018.

'Black Drop' was produced in association with Modern Art Oxford and the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford and is presented in Cornwall courtesy of the artist and The Modern Institute.
