Join CAST (Cornubian Arts & Science Trust), based in Helston, this May bank holiday (5-7 May) for the launch of Groundwork. Running until September 2018, Groundwork presents a season of international contemporary art exhibitions and events in unusual locations around West Cornwall.

Artist duo Semiconductor were commissioned to make a new moving image work for Groundwork. As the World Turns is a science fiction, which questions how we experience nature through the language of science and technology. The work combines video footage filmed at Goonhilly Earth Station and scientific data acquired through the process of radio astronomy. The Goonhilly site brings with it a sense of its own history, the achievements once gained, future endeavours and of nature and technology co-existing.

As the World Turns was commissioned by CAST for Groundwork, with research support from scientists associated with CUGA (Consortium of Universities for Goonhilly Astronomy).
