Inspired by Sir Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations, Interlock: Friends Pictured Within is a modern day artistic response to the theme of friendship.
Inside you’ll discover fourteen new musical and visual variations on the theme composed and captured with the participation of people from our local community. Each variation exists as its own self-contained piece, but interactive floor sensors allow the audience to activate multiple variations at once, which interlock to form one larger composition. This interactive multimedia installation has been designed by artist Jonathan Munro in collaboration with composer Anna Meredith and musician and producer Jack Ross, plus over 150 people from London aged 8+ from the following groups:
Barbican Young Poets
