Hello,

I am happy to announce that Becky Edmunds will be tailoring a one-to-one video and audio workshop for my Arts Council R&D project.

Becky is a video artist with a background in dance and choreography; she is an associate artist at Blast Theory. What really excites me about her work is the way she uses the images to communicate movement and rhythm, her uses of ambient sound and music to guide the viewer, but not impose meaning.

The workshop will consist of two parts. A first part where we will be looking at how to capture sound and images. Talking to Becky she suggested I take along someone to help on the day. She rightly pointed out that there are too many aspects to keep under control namely sound and image capturing, preparing the space, hosting the event, the technical bits – i.e. skype connections or loss of – and, not least importantly, engaging actively in the conversation.

Good bit of advice that!

The second part of the workshop will happen after the actual event and will concentrate on editing and how to convey the conversation and atmosphere of the day.

I’m really looking forward to it.

Drawing Space

Drawing Space is an interesting initiative by Brighton artist Carolyn Bew during the Artist Open House. It is a collaborative event over three weekends. Visitors are invited to take part in a collective drawing incorporating sound and video, which will transform this empty space into an interactive environment. Each evening a video will be made of the artworks, before the walls are repainted for the following day.
