It was only in the last couple of weeks leading up to A Space for the Bittern that I found myself travelling back to my school math classes, exploring the workings of venn […]
A final image from ‘A Space for the Bittern’, and a thank you to the more than 100 people that came to see the installation at Waterhay (on a weekend […]
In answer to the question posed here, yes, the bittern did make it into the exhibition. It featured on the ‘decoy’ video mentioned in the previous post.
At the eastern entrance to the chancel, in the vacated nave space, a thin cabinet in which the ‘decoy’ video played. Decoys are all surface and outline, the internals don’t matter.
In front of the side window, placed on a small wooden platform, a piece of scientific glassware, an evaporation dish, in which 12 small brass oospores rested, each a slightly different […]
Twelve banners stood in groups around the chancel at Waterhay as part of ‘A Space for the Bittern’. An event just missed, or for one to come? Remnants of a […]
This event at the weekend went really well and thank you to all those who came to see the exhibition. The chancel in its meadow is a quite magical place, […]
Sometimes a project throws up an image that stops you in your tracks: the question then becomes whether to exclude it or whether I need to change the direction of […]
Back at art college for my final degree show I produced a sculpture made from sliced inflatable decoy ducks, each duck connected to an air pumping system which slowly inflated […]
A years worth of data is captured in the shapes of these twelve forms, each one representing a month. Made out of sintered bronze, they are now ready to go […]
Working with 3D scans made from photographs of a pair of bitterns for ‘A Space for the Bittern’ which is going to be shown at the Old Chancel, Waterhay, 24-25 […]
From the air, the Old Chancel at Waterhay is bound by a beautifully eccentric pattern of hedges, remnants of bygone usages, different times layered one upon another. To me, this […]
The bittern (Botaurus stellaris) is known for the males’ booming calls during the breeding season. Hidden amongst the reeds, the deep sounds they produce, resonant of a bellowing bull (botaurus is […]
Visited Pangolin today, the massive bronze foundry just up the valley from my studio in Stroud. I am looking into how the (printed) bronze spore cases might be treated through […]
We seem to have cracked it! Transforming bird calls into 3D landscapes. I know, I was working on this a few years back making 2D images of 3D landscapes for […]
Looking back over the past few posts, I realise that I have been referring to Alluvium, but haven’t introduced it yet. Well, this is now the working title for the […]
