• David Rokeby – Silicon Remembers Carbon The Canadian-born installation artist brings a collection of interactive works together to create his first major Scottish show and retrospective at the CCA. Work on show includes the pioneering sound installation ‘Very Nervous System’, and his explorations of CCTV and surveillance ‘Seen’ and ‘Taken’. CCA, Glasgow, until Sat 15 Sep.
• Roderick Buchanan – Histrionics A series of works by Glasgow-based artist Roderick Buchanan, examining the city’s sectarian divide. Buchanan employs photography and film to demonstrate the similarities between both sides (Catholic and Protestant), using his own personal history as a way of understanding the long history of hate that still runs through the city. Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, until Sun 28 Oct.
• Mike Marshall Marshall uses video and photography to examine seemingly ordinary or overlooked aspects of human activities and experience. His interest in ‘focused daydreaming’ has resulted in a remarkable exhibition of his works that focus on the inconsequential and banal. Paisley Museum, Glasgow, until Tue 30 Sep.
• Six Cities Design Festival: The Scottish Show 2007 A selection of inspirational designs by 34 designers based in Scotland. Highlights include hairstyles captured on film by Leigh Ferguson, a non-denominational public space for contemplation by Hill, Jophson and Robb, and Autumn/Winter fashion by Olanic.
