Tonal Projections

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
Pablo Picasso

 

Tonal Projections was where we saw our work from our Masters group come together. It was fantastic to collaboratively work together to produce this almost “pop-up” projection art from inside #TheTank Studio, at Coventry University.

We created a space that was no longer this Kryptonite cube,  it evolved into a projection art space. We had three types of projections going from within the glass cube. Firstly was the main projection on the wall, we blocked all the sunlight out so that the luminance of the projector could be at its fullest and all the colours being able to pop out at the audience.  Then there was Ken experiential projection, which evolved with the setting sun.

Bill Viola, Yorkshire Sculpture Park & Giant Bunnies

Bill Viola is one of worlds modern, visual artists, who uses video and sensory artistry. He has for over 40 years created art in various forms, such as installations, architectural video installations, warped sound environments, while also commercial work for television. The environmental impact of the senses through perception is a way for humanity to explore self-knowledge. What is it to be human is the main question. He uses experiences such as birth, death and human consciousness. The work is spiritual both in methods and traditions.

The whole experience of going to see the exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture park was one of a small self- exploration against the elements. We were warned that it was muddy, and yes it was. We were warned that it would be cold and yes it was. And finally we were told to wear sensible clothing…. we were a bunch of under-prepared misfits. But this was this first lesson.
