    And If Not Now, When? immersive film installation

    And If Not Now is art collective Philip Pinsky and Karen Lamond is an interactive sound and film installation for COP26 at National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh. The installation takes the form of heightened audio-visual representations, using sound, film and animation. It is a visceral experience, aiming to unlock and disturb received wisdom through aurally striking, visually arresting, humorous and seductive interrogations. Critically, the space is reactive to the audience, empowering us to change the environments we inhabit.
