Nothing From Nothing Residency

Posted by on May 1, 2018 in Exhibition, Residency, Talks | No Comments

 

It’s been an amazing experience to co-organise and participant in ‘Nothing from Nothing‘, a fleeting, collaborative residency at LIMBO, Margate.

Inspired by the extensive revisions, suggestions and edits made by Ezra Pound to T.S. Eliot’s manuscript of The Waste Land, Nothing from Nothing was a fleeting, collaborative residency examining editing as a creative process. Over the course of one weekend in April 2018, ten professional artists came together in Margate, the area where Eliot himself found inspiration for the seminal poem.

It was a real privilege to attend iDocs this year and speak about my work.

I touched upon my work at the Netherlands Film Academy and bridged to more recent experimentation combining cultural heritage and Mixed Reality.

Thanks to Robin Kwong for writing up some notes from the day here

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.

Our graduation show is taking place at the EYE museum Amsterdam. I’ll be presenting a number of live demonstrations of my Mixed Reality installation (in progress) The Chorus – built in the Microsoft HoloLens.

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.
