Refractal Revisited

On 5th-6th July I worked once again with artists Carole Miles and Kate Dyer to follow up our Refractal project.

Refractal was an installation and walk we created in the Kings Wood in Corby in March. Four months on, we turned up at NNContemporary in Northampton to continue exploring some of the ideas, this time in an indoor setting in NN's Project Space.

We didn't know exactly what we would do, the idea was to spend the weekend experimenting with the idea of reflections, refracting and bringing the woodland into the indoor space.

The Project Space is lovely and we were pleased with our results. We had some great visitors too, who interacted with the work; people played with our shiny pebbles, our mirrors and the light, wore our blindfolds and listened to the recording of the woodlands that I had made, and talked about the value of woodlands, the senses and personal connections with places.

We have developed some new ideas as a result of this short project so we hope to bring more woodland exploration to you soon!
