I've started working on a new project at Burnham Village in South Bucks, where we plan to bring the trees from the ancient local forest at Burnham Beeches into the village for the annual Festival of Light on Friday 3 December. I was asked to make some work for this event because of my interest in colour/light and light installations.
Local children are helping me create several pieces for display in and around the village and the Flux Gallery. We aim to make several large-scale projections on to the buildings in the High Street which will be supported by an exhibition to be shown at Flux Gallery from 3 December for several weeks.
We are making several excursions into Burnham Beeches - one of them a night hike - to view the 'characters' who live there. The children will draw and photograph the trees, then manipulate them digitally to create a shifting forest of light.
More details to follow as we get going with the project, but here are a couple of my photographs to give you the idea...
