Night Walk for Edinburgh

The Fruitmarket Gallery / Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

After a sold out world premiere at the 2019 International Festival, this immersive artistic encounter returns to reveal the unseen Edinburgh. 

Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller present an intimate video walk in which the audience, via an app downloaded to their device, are guided through Edinburgh’s Old Town at twilight. The sound is recorded using binaural microphones to create a three-dimensional sound experience as Cardiff’s voice leads you on a journey through the city past and present, conjuring a parallel Edinburgh that engages all the senses. 

Cardiff and Miller are internationally recognised artists, renowned for their work in installation, video and sound. The duo have created innovative audio walks for cities around the world, with Night Walk For Edinburgh as an acclaimed success at the 2019 International Festival. Now the experience is reimagined for our times, remaining in line with social distancing regulations, whilst enabling audiences to experience a transformative celebration of their Festival City.
