The ARKA Group


The ARKA Group is a collaboration between Ben Jeans Houghton & Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, producing films, sculptures and sound works about the stranger fringes of scientific and philosophical thought. The ARKA Group collaborates with emphatic individuals from various disciplines and institutions relevant to the subject of each new work.

Beginnings is an immersive installation that tells the story of our universe from the point of view of a meteorite. Starting with the Big Bang, the meteorite travels to earth, where it is molested by human culture before the red sun swallows everything and the cycle begins again.

The work is approx 15 minutes long, for a small number of people at a time. Visit at any point during opening times.
