Video Projection (Looped) wood and cardboard sculpture

 

 

Installation View of Sculptural Screen, exhibited at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery's 'West Midlands Open 2014' exhibition, October 2014-February 2015. Juxtaposing traditional cinematic projection with irregular non-traditional surfaces and scales playfully examines the definition of “screen”; an object that at once reveals and obscures. The screen’s precarious and dangerous presence in the space creates an intimidating but beguiling art object, one which challenges our relationship to video screens whilst celebrating its potential as a launchpad for human creativity and ideas.
