Spaces of Uncertainty

Monday, 05 September 2016 00:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

As part of the Spaces of Uncertainty Summer Academy in Stuttgart, during September 2016, a number of projected interventions were temporarily installed at the Württembergischer Kunstverein.

Using the disregarded corner of the huge Kunstverein gallery space, these projected light installations 'brushed' the surface of the walls, were present for short periods and then disappeared (when the projection devises were switched of) leaving only the memory of the event.

Walking past the corner - on the way to more significant parts of the gallery, the 'drawn' luminous lines shift, perceptually and clash slightly with our understanding of the edges of the room and how we expect them to appear when we move past them.  There is a perspective 'animation' here activate entirely by the viewers visual expectation and their transition past the work.

The Summer Academy (part of the European Erasmus programme) brought together students and staff from 7 partner institutions :

The Hungarian University of Fine Arts (MKE)
Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design
Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow
Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava
Kingston University
University of Dundee
Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design &
Nottingham Trent University.

Teaching staff lead workshops with students from these European institutions and also developed aspects of their own research through conversation, consultation, collaboration and individual making and testing.

Three – Nine – 35mm

Friday, 06 May 2016 10:19 Published in Projected Light

Title: Three – Nine – 35mm

(Alternative Document filtered) 2016

Date: 2016

Materials: 35mm slides,  electroluminescent panel, electrical tape.

Size: Wall Installation

Notes: Three 35mm digital slides exposed to light during the duration of the Alternative Document exhibition, Project Space Plus, University of Lincoln, UK.

First shown: Still Unresolved, (  ) Gallery, Nottingham Trent University, Fine Art, School of Art and Design, Nottingham, UK, 28th April - 5th May 2016.

A 35mm slide projection and digital hologram installation was included in the Alternative Document exhibition at Project Space Plus, University of Lincoln, UK, for 28 days in 2016. Over that period, light from the projectors denatured the photographic emulsion on each of the slides.  Originally opaque, with a clear line and rectangle – the dark background slowly turned pink, changing the outcome of the projected image over time.

Through the visible changes, which took place over the course of the exhibition, the installation became an unintentional durational work.

Here, the slides used are part of their own ‘filtration’, illuminated by the cold electronic light from the thin, inbuilt, electroluminescent panel.  A self-contained series of tiny images previously hidden within the machines.  As in the projector they intercepted light to form an image - in this case they become objects in their own right - bright rectangles made visible by 'electronic' light.

Special thanks to the staff at www.elpanelandtape.co.uk for their help with the electroluminescent panel and electronics for this installation.





Three Projected Levels

Wednesday, 05 August 2015 16:24 Published in Projected Light

Title: Three Projected Levels

Date: 2015

Materials: Three 35mm slides, projectors & plinths

Size: 4 m wide (approx)

Installation: Gallery wall

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.


A row of 35mm Kodak Carousel slide projectors are located parallel to the gallery wall.  Each contains a specially produced slide which is projected across the gallery onto the wall opposite.

The location, and structure, of the plinth which supports the 35mm slide projector is integral to the installation, offering a 'barrier' between the observer and the observed.



There are a series of questions raised around the nature of the illumination.  Is the projector projecting the image, seen in the hologram, in a traditional manner?  Where is the image located?  Within the hologram, within the projector or some space between the two?
