Entirely Hollow Aside from the Dark is an immersive psychoacoustic sound artwork taking place inside the depths of the caves at Creswell Crags this September.

Using the cave as a physical metaphor for the mind, the cavern personifies the consciousness of Mother Earth as she struggles with her worsening mental health, brought on by the human impact on her body. In the darkness, an audible inner dialogue echoing Mother Earth’s thoughts and unfolding regrets and a symphony of choreographed sounds shifts around the cave, mirroring processes of the human mind. Entirely Hollow Aside from the Dark simultaneously aims to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and encourage environmental sustainability. 


The artwork is created AlanJames Burns in collaboration with writer Sue Rainsford and sound editor Ian Dunphy. It was first commissioned by Fingal County Council for their Resort Revelations 2016 and expanded to a critically well-received Irish national cave tour 2017.

Entirely Hollow Aside from the Dark at Creswell Crags is funded by Arts Council England and Culture Ireland.

Experiences run at 8.45pm and 10.00pm each evening from 3rd to 7th September.
