In Collusion: Arts & Technology Meet Up
Shakespeare Barn, King's Lynn Arts Centre 29 King St, PE30 1HA
30 March 6 - 9 pm

We will be talking about our experiences of working site specifically with light and projection and share some of our thoughts on reality, illusion, virtual reality, interactivity and the interface between audiences, sites and artworks.  Further info...

 

 

 
Seaswim:  Head Above Water

Crescent Arts, Scarborough
18 February - 31 March 2017

 

The transformative effects of sea bathing that inspire artists and writers are captured in an exhibition that explores its sensations, stories and psychological impact.

Head Above Water reveals the embodied imagination of the swimmer's experience through film, photography, sculpture, drawing and poetry.

We will be showing Light Wave in this exhibition curated by Lara Goodband. 

 

 

 
Collusion - Data Culture Lab Artists' Residency
Supported by Anglia Ruskin University, University of Cambridge Museums, Arts Council England & the Greater Cambridge, Greater Peterborough LEP. 

We are excited to be part of Collusion's data-culture lab which take's place 16-20 January 2017. It's a week long development session that will explore evolving ideas and ways in which artists can engage with this mass data culture, set against the backdrop of Cambridge as a leading centre of research and development.

Illuminating York Light Festival 2016

Travelling Light

National Rail Museum, Leeman Road, York
26 to 29 October 2016
Commissioned by Illuminating York and National Rail Museum with support from Pulsar Light

Travelling Light combines film, 3D laser scanning technology and lighting effects to create an ethereal light installation made specifically for The Workshop at the National Rail Museum. Viewed from the balcony above, glimpses of the partially illuminated Workshop can be seen through a large suspended voile screen onto which a film is projected.

The film projection takes a journey into the museum's collection and workshop area, with an eye on the future developments in engineering using new technologies to define space and material. Various light sources and technologies, from LED lighting to 3D laser scans, have been used to reveal or explore different interpretations of the space.

The Workshop is full of historic dismantled trains, components, tools and machines and is a fully functional engineering space. There is a strong sense of material and colour in this space but also potential energy. It is heavy and scattered at the same time.

The 3D point clouds are made up of millions of points of calibrated light taken from multiple locations, each with a three dimensional value that locates a tiny dot on a surface.
It is as if every single item has a fine coating of dust made of light.

3D laser scans are currently used in rail system engineering to determine the kinematic envelope of a train. These envelopes are 3D shells of the spaces that rail vehicles will occupy whilst moving, including the effects of tilting and swaying due to tracks, wind resistance and other mechanical forces.

3D scanning undertaken by CT Surveys

Da Vinci Engineered
Zebedee's Yard, Whitefriar Gate, Prices Dock Street, Hull
Saturday 2nd July - Sunday 21st August 2016

We have been commissioned to create a new artwork for the Da Vinci Engineered Exhibition in Hull and have been developing the work in discussion with the School of Engineering at Hull University. 

This show curated by Lara Goodband, features reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci's flight and wind machines loaned by the Da Vinci Museum, Florence, alongside contemporary artists' works which respond to ideas of flight or use engineering in their conceptualization, design or production. The exhibition is one of the events programmed as part of the Amy Johnson Festival.

Thursday 7th July 6 - 7 pm
Artists' talk - in conversation with David Sowden from School of Engineering, Hull University.

Take a look at our blog to see how the idea developed.
