Voyage, a journey into imagination
posted on 19/12/2012 13:15:12 by Hemera

Interactive Installation at Canary WharfVoyageThe etymon of the word 'voyage' comes from Latin viāticum, which means 'provision for travelling'; the inspiration of this artwork is to allow people to travel and sail with absolute freedom to all the places we care to imagine. Paper boats bring us in voyages through childhood memories, wishes and imaginings. Paper boats’ on the water invite everyone to make a transition from reality to imagination, reliving childhood memories and embracing our freedom. Creating an unexpected and unusual addition to the landscape, Voyage inspires the viewers to think creatively about the spaces around them; the dynamic coloured light scenarios of the artwork invite the viewer to make a smooth transition between reality and daydream.

TippingPoint
posted on 08/03/2012 16:33:58 by Hemera
What are the challenges for artists in response to the rapidly changing climate in a society where the level of consumerism is not sustainable? 
And how will people change their way of living because of the influence of art?
Thanks to a TippingPoint bursary I’ve been able to attend an intense 3 day gatherings and precipitate to a constructive dialogue between artists, scientists and others close to the heart of this issue – with the objective of starting initiatives of all types that can play their part in bringing about these shifts.
TippingPoint’s guiding principles are simple: through their creative work and through collaborations with scientists, artists can play a vital role in exploring and pointing the way towards the cultural, societal and behavioural shifts needed in a world subject to a rapidly changing climate.

Growing Forest
posted on 20/09/2010 11:33:34 by Hemera

22-31 October - The Shed, 348-354 High Street, Gateshead;
Opening: 22 October, 6pm – 10pm

Aether & Hemera's projection visualizes and reflects the growing state of the social relations and conversations in the Shed space. Each conversation is represented by a shrub, growing in real-time while individuals chat with one another; these will change in a shape, size and hue depending on the duration and volume of the conversation as perceived by different sensors and microphone.

By the end of the exhibition the whole series of conversations will have generated an intricate and colourful forest still evolving as new spectators and guests interact in front of it. Not only will the Growing Forest be developed by dialogues, but by displaying a representation of conversations to the audience, will provide new items to discuss, resulting in a convoluted self-generating loop. The Growing Forest represents a narrative visualization of all discussions’ history.
