Julijonas Urbonas: solo show at Collective, Edinburgh, Scotland

Planet of People

29 Feb 2020 — 8 May 2020  

"Collective is delighted to present an exhibition by Julijonas Urbonas, a Lithuanian artist who works between critical design, amusement park engineering, performative architecture, choreography, kinetic art and science fiction.

Julijonas will create a new version of his ongoing project Planet of People for our City Dome exhibition space, a renovated building which once housed a large astronomical telescope. Planet of People is an artistic and scientific feasibility study of an artificial planet made entirely from human bodies. The exhibition consists of six 3D scanners which are used to scan visitors, who can then view their bodies forming a new celestial object in a simulation based on astrophysics...."
