Re-Move is an immersive sound and light installation exploring the human consequences of climate change and disaster displacement. It fills the beautiful architecture of St Mary’s church with an evolving journey of synchronised light and sound.
Climate change is the defining crisis of our time, and disaster displacement one of its most devastating consequences. Entire populations are being displaced due to slow onset environmental processes such as drought, wildfire, sea-level rise, shoreline erosion, flooding and agricultural disruption. Re-Move is an engaging and abstract reflection on the journeys taken by those affected, the human impact, and the action and inaction of how we are dealing with this all-encompassing crisis.
Artist Urban Projections, and Composer & Sound Designer CJ Mirra, continue their collaborative journey, co-creating this installation with Inspire Youth Arts and young people from across Nottinghamshire, for Nottingham Light Night 2023.
The piece is a continuation of work from 2022, in which ‘States of Matter’ explored the effects of Climate change on our planets fragile relationship with water. Building on last years scientific lines of enquiry, this years work explores the human consequence of the climate crisis.
Re-move is created in collaboration with Dr Tom Vickers, an Associate Professor of Sociology at Nottingham Trent University and author of Borders, Migration and Class in an Age of Crisis (2019, Bristol University Press). It draws inspiration, and uses audio samples, from Tom’s work with refugees in the UK.
Over the last fifteen years Tom has used a focus on borders and racism to examine how exploitation, oppression and resistance operate across fields including employment, volunteering, social work & social care, and the media.

"It was inspiring and immersive. I loved seeing how it changed the architecture of the space. It was unexpected and took you beyond your own concepts.
