Planning, Thinking, Illuminate Bath

Many more updates on the website now! Here's the link to my little bit! Here's what the programme will tell you, dated TBC but it'll be in the first week of November!

All that glitters is not gold

I am a final year Fine Artist studying at the Bath School of Art and Design. Currently my practice involves finding unwanted or 'worthless' things, and looking at them in new ways.

This new installation "All that glitters is not gold" will use light in a playful, explorative way to transform ordinary, everyday objects.

In keeping with the festival's theme of 'kinetic light energy', the installation will use light and movement generated directly by participants. The audience will be invited to get involved in the inner workings of the installation. They will press, click, turn and move in order to generate and discover abstract patterns of light and shadow.

All that glitters is not gold

'Illuminate Bath' is a new festival I'm taking part in this November. Check out the website at there will be more info on it soon!

Here's an idea of the work I'm going to be showing...

Transformation, Illuminations

"All that glitters is not gold."

This new installation will transform ordinary, everyday objects by the use of light.

Light will be used as a means of looking at overlooked objects in new ways, giving them a fresh significance. Equally, through using these everyday things, light itself can be considered in new ways.

The audience will be directly involved in the installation, which will use light and movement generated by participators, with no complications or hidden technology. The resulting, surprising illuminations can be traced back to their beginnings through physical interventions.
