The multidisciplinary arts festival Colomboscope has invited Swiss artist Robin Meier who will present a research based project – Seedless Grapes (working title).
The project, a study based on bird behaviour, is an immaterial sound work that will take place in the natural ecology. As part of Colomboscope, Robin will connect with local artists, bird lovers, musicians, journalists, sailors and other actors of civic society to explore Sri Lanka’s present and past history.

The sixth edition of the multidisciplinary arts festival, COLOMBOSCOPE will engage the oceanic frontier, entwining marine ecologies and seafaring histories to conceive an archipelago of ideas. Inviting newly commissioned and recent works by local and international visual artists alongside a programme of film, music and performance. Through an itinerary of venues located along the coastline of Colombo, the festival will follow cross currents surveying hidden histories of the island and its harbour,
accelerated infrastructural developments that shape future expansion of the city and creatively navigate modes of public access to the sea.
