Coming to Scotland for the first time, The Influence Machine is an internationally acclaimed immersive outdoor sculptural experience by artist Tony Oursler. Described as a 'holographic model of human desire and dread', The Influence Machine captures the haunting atmosphere of magic lanterns, Victorian light shows, camera obscura and parlour tricks, while embracing the fully networked, digitally-assisted future of image and identity production.Coming to Scotland for the first time, The Influence Machine is an internationally acclaimed immersive outdoor sculptural experience by artist Tony Oursler.
