2020 / 2021
During lockdown, I found a way to collaborate with other artists using 'analogue' means as opposed to the digital tidal wave that we were experiencing in many aspects of our life. I decided to ask artists to choose a couple of images of mine, that I would then print and post to them. They then create something new using their own fabulous artistic talents and methods. It's not about my photos, they simply provide a common thread for this collaborative experiment. The finished works I have seen so far are so varied and inspired - all on a pandemic theme. We hope to have an exhibition as soon as we're allowed to gather in one place. I will keep you updated!
One of the exceptions to the 'analogue only' rule is my collaboration with Anne Bruce (AKA @micromeandering on Instagram - check her work out), an animator I met a few years ago. She chose my image of Woburn forest and made this funky wonder to help promote the 'Analogue It!' project...
" During lockdown I really enjoyed this challenge.
I was able to extend and practice my animation skills from a different angle using the image of trees in a forest to provide a backdrop for some steam punky camera action. It is always satisfying to see the movement and flow develop. There was the added satisfaction in the inclusion of music which seemed to enhance the movement."
