I am absolutely delighted to have been awarded one of the 2019 A.N artist bursaries to explore the potential of combining traditional drawing and printmaking with digital navigation technologies and sound. Building on my existing fine art practice and research with mapping technologies I will work with sound poet and composer – Ralph Hoyte and coder/audio engineer – Phil Phelps, creators of Statsymph – http://satsymph.co.uk/home-2/more-on-satsymph to develop a new installation using their expertise in geo located soundscapes and immersive applications and my hand drawn images.
Exciting first meeting in Bristol, discussions, software and imagery show and tell.
Thoughts and key words emerged:
Interesting ideas emerged that sounds and narratives are a constant stream or line of sound running through the landscape. The artwork then acts as conduit, motion and light will interact with the imagery to dip into these streams of sound. Revealing sound/poem/stories as moments of rhythm, memories and narratives of the imagination.
Intention to offer a reconnection to these liminal landscapes, reengaging with the multitude of voices that reside within.
Transformation from one state to another – Seasons and time are constantly reoccurring measures and events within our lives but are states, which differ from what went before in a constant process of change.
Much to think about before our next meeting.
