A forest arts event in Scotland is to explore the issues around intimacy with cyborgs.

Vivienne Kuh, a Bristol-based creative producer , will present an adults-only talk at this month’s Sanctuary art event which takes place in the heart of a forest in Dumfries and Galloway.

'Cyborgs, Sexbots and Sexual Intimacy' will discuss the social, ethical, psychological and even criminal issues involved in this subject.

Sanctuary takes place from noon on September 23.

Another highlight will be Dark Outside FM, a site-specific radio station playing previously unheard music contributed from all round the world.

It’s a complete one-off as listeners can only tune in onsite and the sound files are destroyed when the event ends.

Sanctuary artworks also include:

Jo Hodges, co-curator, said: “Sanctuary is a laboratory for art and new thinking. We hope that Viv Kuh’s talk will get people discussing an issue that is going to have an immense impact on our world in the not too distant future.”

Sanctuary is at Murray’s Monument, A712, near Newton Stewart, Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park.
