Sevenesque III is a research and development project exploring the use of 3D print, scan and motion capture technology in painting, sculpture and video art.
I experimented with processes merging various traditional media and techniques, including acrylics, spray paints, illustration and photography, with 3D modelling and computer aided design, to create work that attempts to blur the line between digital and analogue, the real and the virtual.
Thematically the work draws inspiration from religious iconography, science fiction and comic art, with a focus on the moment of enlightenment / evolution / emergence.
Inspired by Transformers mythoology, I worked with engineer Duncan Turner to transform a Landrover into a giant musical interactive condor.
The idea for Engine Tuning stemmed out of the tragic death of a young person, Stuart Henderson, in a car accident in Shetland. Stuart was a member of the Shetland Youth Theatre, and Buzzbeak was commissioned in his honour.
Buzzbeak sonically interacts with it's audience, recording, remixing and playing back the sounds and music she is given, aided by a hidden electronica artist in a second Land Rover Discovery.
Ananta is an exhibition created using 3D modelling, animation and rapid prototyping. Made in residency and exhibited at Lanternhouse, Ulverston, and toured to DLi Art Gallery & Museum in Durham, Leamington Spa Royal Pump Rooms, and Blank Space Gallery in Manchester
