A line Between is a video produced as part of my Yorkshire Artspace Micro Grant for the Castlegate Festival. The video is an animated slide show made out of photographic images taken during a walk around the area.
My intention was to explore the area and collect images. I was trying to get a feel for the area, get to know it better and decide how I would use the architecture of the Castlegate quarter to produce one of my digital drawings.
I am pleased to announce that I have been offered a Microgrant from YA Yorkshire ArtSpace in Sheffield.
The grant is for me to develop new drawings using the Castlegate area of Sheffield as subject and to explore new processes. Resulting work will published in an exhibition at their Exchange Place studios, located in Castlegate.
There are a number of different elements to the work that I will be carrying out. You can follow the progress of this work in a blog.
A part of the grants work will include a call out for people to submit images for me to use in a drawing, information about taking part in this is posted here.
From November last year until February 2014 I was working with Nottingham Contemporary’s Get Involved project. With the help of the young people and Sian and Alice I was commissioned by the group to produce an animation to be used as part of an installation for their Collabor-8 night held at the Gallery.
I worked with pupils from Outwood Edge Primary School in Loughborough, we used a picture by Patrick Hughes to inspire our work. His work used three dimensional paintings to play with perspective, we then built our own individual model rooms. We added personal touches and then put them all together to make one large construction of the whole classes efforts. This final stage was a spontaneous development by the class, carried out without prompting.
