Photo Gallery | Standard Life Opening event: Deep Time

On Sunday 7 August thousands of people will gather to watch Standard Life Opening Event: Deep Time.

Edinburgh’s iconic Castle Rock becomes a window to the past as the city’s dramatic 350 million year history is captured through a kaleidoscope of animation by 59 Productions and the apocalyptic forces of Mogwai’s music. 

The event will conclude the first weekend of the International Festival and is free to the public. Tickets are required, however, and will be available from July 11.

Until then, the following images give you an idea of what to expect. If you know what Castle Rock usually looks like, they will be hard to believe!
