One Person Show of research works from AHRC Fellowship

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

On obtaining my AHRC Creative Research Fellowship I argued that each artefact created to explore the core research question would effectively be a building block in a developing argument about the effect of increased computational abilities, as witnessed in increased resolution in the generation of electronic motion imaging. Of course I would publish standard academic outputs, peer reviewed articles and papers, but the effect of resolution would be best experienced by exposure to it.

Just before I created the main large scale exhibition in London to demonstrate my argument I was asked by Salisbury Arts Center to stage a one person show to fill their space. The exhibition of research work at Salisbury Arts Center showed around 11 of the 18 new pieces I had created during the fellowship. I include the URL above which is of the P3 final fellowship research exhibition as an example of the works shown – not the space. In Salisbury there was a 20 foot x 10 foot screen hung above the audience within the café at an angle of 45 degrees on which Un Tempo Una Volta was playing in a continuous loop (Publication 136028). There was a cinemateque with sepaprate seating showing experpts of work, a 42 inch plasma showing In Re Ansel Adams Continuosly (Publication 136013), another plasma display showing Until I’m Gone (Publication 136066) plus 6 accompanying prints of the same size, plus during the month long exhibition I also premiered Myth and Meaning in the Digital Age (Publication 136082) a work begun in 1989 and finished in 2010).

Engagement with communities and subsequent attendance at events such as this brings new audiences to digital installations and information presented with the installation reveals the research enquiry and core research questions, plus credits the AHRC and University of Bristol as sponsors of the event. Around 3000 people attended this exhibition.
