Based on Werner’s film Oculista in which a lone traveller meets a beautiful mysterious girl at a train station, this atmospheric installation takes you on an illusion-fuelled journey to darkly poetic places. Take a peek into a miniature world with this curiously vaudevillian sonic experience, featuring music by Graeme Miller. Tales of Magical Realism was commissioned by Cryptic for Sonica 2012 and sold out.

Sonica: sonic art for the visually minded is a programme of events that presents emerging British talent alongside exceptional international artists.

Part of the Made in Scotland and British Council Edinburgh Showcases 2013.
