Did you know Generator Projects has a steam room and a mini cinema?

The artists at Generator Projects have never been scared of pushing the boundaries with their contemporary art installations.

But their latest show, View, which brings together leading artists from across Europe, is unlike any other they've staged before.

For starters there's a steam room and sauna inside a huge Vango tent, in which you can wear as much or as little as you feel comfortable in.

There are free apples from an urban orchard, grown right here in Dundee.

And there's the mini-cinema, which poses the question of what a cinema really means to a city?

Each installation is unique in its own way, but collectively they raise a very important issue about the future of Dundee.

Holly Keasey, pictured below on the right, a member of the Generator Projects committee, explains.

She said: "View looks at issues to do with design, and asks, 'how do art and design cross over?'

"The curation itself is to do with city planning, which is an area I find really interesting. Dundee is going through huge changes and View looks at the lack of discussion on the development of Dundee within the art practice in particular, and among artists in the city,

"So it's posing that question of how can artists engage with the design process in Dundee. Each element of the show is something that makes up a city, so we've got the cinema which looks at the idea of escapism and shelter.

"We have a temporary sauna and steam room. It's looking at whether saunas are a space where, if you have to take off your clothes and be in this different environment, does it actually make you relate to people slightly differently?

"Ilana Mitchell, the artist who created it, is looking at whether that could be useful in areas such as conflict resolution."

As well as the cinema and the steam room, the Dundee Urban Orchard project has a display where visitors can press their own apples.

If you want to take a look, or just fancy a shot in the tent-sauna, then head down to the artist-run space.

View opened last Friday and will run until Sunday, November 9.
