A Sense of Place

An inspiring week in Plymouth attending the Balance Unbalance 2017 conference. A trans-disciplinary exploration of A Sense of Place across art, technology, science, ecology, social conscience, and imagined futures.

I presented a research paper discussing the experience of presence, exhibited the Orbit Series at Ocean Studios, Royal Willian Yard (continues until Sun Sept 10th) and screened RCA Fulldome Research Group films in the i-Dat.org Immersive Vision Theatre.

Conference highlights included a group excursion to the Eden Project, the exquisite smell of frangipani (a smell of summer), and inspiring conversations with new networks of like-minded artists, researchers and designers. A welcome break from my summer of rigorous academic writing.

Printing and Binding

A day in the workshop printing editions of my Orbit Series with RCA print master and technician Andy Richardson. Followed by tea, cake and a book binding planning meeting with designer Helga Schmid.

The Orbit Series will be exhibited at Royal William Yard in Plymouth during the Balance-Unbalance Conference in Plymouth in August 2017. A limited edition A Year of Light artist’s book will be published in September 2017.
