I was again honoured to be asked to work with Marshmallow Laser Feast on a large scale Muti-installation work in a cemetery in Coventry. I worked on Tides Within Us, (first shown in York Mediale) and Oceans of Air (pictured below, overview video below that)
Mapping the journey of breath from different scientific and cultural perspectives, this multisensory narrative of epic proportions uncovers the living worlds both beyond and within us, to reveal the deep and beautiful truths that lie just outside the limits of our perception. The ambitious works will be located across the beautiful, tree-filled spaces and buildings of Charterhouse Heritage Park – Joseph Paxton’s Grade I listed cemetery and its arboretum. Observations on Being has been developed by Marshmallow Laser Feast in collaboration with artists James Bulley and Natan Sinigaglia and some of the extraordinary and influential scientists, writers and musicians who have inspired and informed their work. Contributors from the science community include; pioneering medical imaging innovators Fraunhofer MEVIS (who partnered on The Tides Within Us), Hae-jin & Jacob Marshall of EMBC, Nessie Reid of the Global Environments Network (GEN), ecologist and philosopher Dr David Abram, professor of Plant Soil Processes Prof. Katie Field, the author and biologist Merlin Sheldrake and holistic scientist Dr Stephan Harding.
Another project with Marshmallow Laser Feast, a particularly mind bending installation.
Distortions in Spacetime by Marshmallow Laser Feast is as interactive audiovisual installation, in which the participants and their movements are reflected by particle systems to help them comprehend the cosmic connection between black holes, dying stars, and our very existence.
What would it feel like to step into a black hole? Prepare to be stretched, squashed and spaghettified as a spacetime singularity pops up in the 1830 Warehouse. Distortions in Spacetime is the latest sensory creation by cutting-edge audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast. Play among the particle jets and see the light as you journey through the depths of space and experience one of the biggest mysteries of the universe unravel all around you.
Scree is an experimental audio/video project I have been doing over several years with Neil Spragg its explores feedback systems including audio-video/video-audio loops. This video is from 2011 at the Hexagon Theatre at the MAC Birmingham.
