Just delivered: my first gallery interactive (my first solo one anyway). Broken Mirrors 1-4 is a large-scale reflective projection, that only exists while a spectator is interacting with it. Each viewer’s movements control one of four generative animations, so no two visits will produce the exact same visual. The experience is made more immersive thanks to a specially written soundscape by my, now regular, collaborator Tim Diagram (of Hessien fame).
The interactive will be at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, Stoke-On-Trent from January 29th until Easter, as part of their Erasure exhibition – a particularly bold and farsighted exhibition by this large, but distinctly regional, gallery. Erasure has been years in the making, and has been a labour of love for the curators Alec Morrison and Jean Milton, so it should definitely be worth the trip.
More/bigger pics on Flickr. I’ll post some video of the thing in action as soon as I’ve been up there to take some.
