The Fruitmarket Gallery Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller
Discover an alternative, unseen Edinburgh. A city where memory and history collide, where the strange and the unexpected skew your sense of what is real.
Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller present an intimate, one-on-one video walk in which the audience are guided by specially created video through Edinburgh’s Old Town at twilight. The sound is recorded using binaural microphones to create a three-dimensional sound experience as Cardiff’s voice leads you on a journey through the city past and present, conjuring a parallel Edinburgh that engages all the senses.
Cardiff and Miller are internationally recognised artists, renowned for their work in installation, video and sound.
Whether you are a visitor or a resident, Night Walk for Edinburgh will transform your perception of the Festival City.
Commissioned for the city of Edinburgh by The Fruitmarket Gallery, presented in partnership with Edinburgh International Festival and in association with Edinburgh Art Festival. Acquired by the Fruitmarket with Art Fund support.

It is a night walk in the Old Town of Edinburgh and the route includes staircases, steep hills and uneven surfaces in low light. The piece may also provoke a sense of disorientation so please be aware of your surroundings as you take part. We recommend comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing.
