Portraits of the Somerset Carnivals

TR Flaxton

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


This exhibition in a 15th century Barn is a product of my 3rd portfolio of work where I explore the effects of high resolution on the human portrait. This work necessitated engaging with the local community of Burnham on Sea and the Somerset Carnival Clubs to produce a set of high resolution moving image portraits that could then be shown life-sized in the Rural Life Barn and therefore necessitated a screen size of 20 foot x 10 foot. 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 inquiry and core research questions, plus credits the AHRC and University of Bristol as sponsors of the event. About 700 people viewed this exhibition.
