Installation with three 35mm projections and tracing points of laser light.

Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.

Three Kodak Carousel slide projectors, mounted on white gallery plinths, each project a luminous rectangle bisected by a horizontal line.  These individual projections ‘connect’ on the gallery wall to produce an apparently single line of light punctuated by luminous rectangles.

Five ‘tracers’, each using a small green laser, trace the edges and boundaries of the projected surface.  Four of the ’tracers’ occupy positions next to each plinth, a fifth (out of shot) acts as a ‘lead tracer’, which the others follow.

This performative ‘drawing’ installation attempts to emphasis the physical act of drawing and the generation of edges and boundaries which are not physically present.

Special thanks for the ‘tracers’: Holly Seymour, Bethany Elmer,
Alice Hunt, Alice Murphy & Kayleigh Flaxman who assisted with this developmental installation and a number of other experiments which took place during the Summer Lodge.
