AniMotion website has gone live!
Following on from the success of our collaboration at the Cambridge Institute of Astronomy we are planning our next event. Maria & I very much enjoyed our collaboration and we will work together again in December at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.
Dates and ticket details to follow.
We have also launched a website to talk about all things AniMotion.
I am the owner of The Projection Studio, a company specialising in large scale and architectural projection events.
I was born and educated in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, before moving to
London and Paris where I began work in large scale Son et Lumière.
I am a practitioner of the art of Architectural Projection. I use
images and architecture in combination to allow audiences to see a
building in a new way.
My overall vision goes beyond a static appearance and takes into account
the motion of light and objects. My specially commissioned Son et
Lumière shows have received much attention worldwide.
I like to take the landscape and the texture of the space as my
inspiration. Three-dimensional surfaces allow me to add or subtract
texture and imagery, to play games with space. I want the viewer to
arrive at a new appreciation of a series of surfaces.
Many of the buildings and sites that I work with are protected, listed
or world heritage sites. It is not possible to physically manipulate
these buildings in any way on a permanent basis. Re-manipulating the
architecture within the projection allows the possibility of changing
and re-imagining these buildings on a transitory basis.
