Edges of Anticipation

Considering our time and the fluidity of thought, I began these paintings in the local landscape, where some form of stability and foundation may be found. Knowing that these Derbyshire formations are in themselves fluid in movement over vast swathes of time, formed by geology, climate and human hands.

This lead me to memories and mythology. In particular the story of Prometheus, who stole fire (or spirit) from the Gods to give to humanity, for which he and humanity were punished by Zeus. He may be found in these paintings considering the act which he is about to commit and the consequences. The story is reflected in other creation narratives.

Projection Mapping at Kelham Island, Sheffield

Projecting on to Phlegm’s amazing Street art at Kelham Island, using an Epson projector coupled to a Lightform spatial analyser and a small generator for power. It was quite late at night but still had a few people pass by who were very enthusiastic about the event.

Hagglers Corner Projection Test

AR Projection onto Jo Peel’s mural outside Hagglers Corner, Heeley Bottom, Queens Rd, Sheffield

So the intention is to look for suitable graffiti around town to make some projections. I have a Lightform which is really useful in scanning and tracing objects and lines so that he whole process can be done in a couple of minutes. Having scanned I then add in different effects to places with in the scan, which, artistically, takes a bit longer – and a show can be put together within 45 minutes.

Reef Wall

Primavera Calling. Dronfied Arts Festival 2018

An AR (Augmented Reality) Projection onto the Walls of Dronfield Hall Barn.

A poetic story of hope for children and adults. 

As words describing our natural world have been forgotten and nature herself is losing a battle against what has been done to the earth by older generations. 

Children begin to form new words for the creatures they love and keep them in the ‘Book of Knowing’ . 

They find themselves hearing  from the past, in the voices of the ’Primavera’ , that the only hope for their world is in caring for it in most creative ways. 

This moving and delightfully illustrated story was originally written and produced as an animation for the Dronfield Arts Festival 2018 and has now been reimagined in an enchanting book by artist and author John Sutcliffe.

The Animation can be viewed here
