Birmingham Weekender, the city's largest arts festival, presents Tony Oursler's multimedia installation The Influence Machine. The work will be projected onto St Phillips Cathedral from 8–10pm on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September.

This artwork, a psycho-landscape of ethereal figures projected onto the cathedral, trees, walls and clouds of smoke, tells the stories of the technological leaps in telecommunication – from the telegraph to the radio, the television and the internet – and delves deep into the history of media.

The Influence Machine is from The Artangel Collection and is presented as part of Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Foyle Foundation, Arts Council England, Birmingham Museums Trust and Colmore Business District.
