 //“__The Aphotic Zone__ is a five channel installation created for the group show ‘Heavy Sentience’ at Block 336, Brixton. Rooted in the idea of sensing material, the exhibition was conceived in direct response to the gallery’s subterranean architecture. Triggered by the distant voices of occupants located on upper floors, Scott began an exploration into the power of language to conjure imagined worlds. An aphotic zone refers to the part of the ocean where barely any sunlight is present, and little is visible to the human eye. On one of the screens, alongside a script by the artist, is a quote from ‘Roadside Picnic’, 1971, a science-fiction novel by the Strugatsky brothers portraying the earth as a series of zones that each contain unexplained phenomena. Nearby, Scott combines shots of Lancaster butterfly house, recently earmarked for closure, with 1960s science documentary of a photosynthesis lab, alluding to the transformative powers of sunlight against the transient state of culture.”//  ​ //“__The Aphotic Zone__ is a five channel installation created for the group show ‘Heavy Sentience’ at Block 336, Brixton.
