Over the past two years I’ve been doing an MA at the Netherlands Film Academy. It’s been an incredible opportunity to ask questions, experiment and build a body of research.

I’ll be ‘opening’ up my research during an Artistic Research festival at the EYE museum Amsterdam.

There will be a number of presentations and live demonstrations of my Mixed Reality installation (in progress) The Chorus – built in the Microsoft HoloLens.

My research is presented online here and more details of what I’m presenting during the show can be found here.

Photogrammetry at the Wellcome Trust

As part of the 3D4ever conference at the Wellcome Trust I’ve been co-running workshops on the photogrammetry process with Ed Silverton.

We’ve been demonstrating how to take a physical object and use photogrammetry to turn it into a 3D model like the one below.

I’ve just completed this short film for Colin Riley, a London based composer. Colin’s new work ‘Songs of Coiled Light’ makes use of multi-sensory elements to provide a different kind of listening experience based on his research into hearing impairment. Featuring bass clarinetist Gareth Davis and live electronics designer Carl Faia it was filmed during a residency and several live performances taking place as part of the SoundFestival in Aberdeen.

Since starting my Master’s at the Netherlands Film Academy (AHK) I have been directing my energy toward a body of research documented on a separate site.

The blog is currently private but I’d like to open it to people who have similar research interests and may be interested in sharing ideas and collaborating. Over the next few months I’ll be posting more information on this site however in the meantime please email me if you would like to find out more.

As a follow up from a recent documentary workshop with Specular I’ve been working with Agisoft Photoscan to create some 3D models using photogrammetry. Below are a few examples kindly lent by Nelis Antiques, Amsterdam displayed in the Universal Viewer.

Bell Halsall Duo

I’ve just completed a video for the Bell Halsall duo. The duo, pianist Kate Halsall and electric guitarist Joel Bell performed an improvised electronic composition to the twenty minute video for their latest project, Horizontal transfer.

The video explores Coventry through themes of celebration, tradition, war, devastation, industry and regeneration and was compiled from archive footage from 1918 to the present day.

[dis]place – hARTslane

22 – 23 August 2015, 11 am – 6 pm

Private View Saturday 22 August, 6 – 9 pm

hARTslane

[dis]place brings together three artists – Sophie Dixon, Claire Orme and Mai Spring.

Based in the UK and Finland their practices examine the broadly used notion of ‘Place’. Working across a variety of media the artists open a dialogue which traverses the fragile boundaries between reality and perception, challenging the very concept of stability between ourselves and the landscape around us.

The Private View will include live events. For more information please go to the website at www.dis-place.com
