Flight depicts a solid trace echo of a bird taking-off. The subject’s suspended presence encapsulates a frozen moment in time.
Crossfire centralizes around the context of a domestic argument. In this case the event samples an audio excerpt from the 1999 Sam Mendes Film ‘American Beauty’.
Shine puts ancient traditions of representation in a new digital context, which, while it provides on the one hand, a ‘true’ optical likeness, on the other, has its own disruptive mannerisms and modus operandi. Shine addresses the wide spectrum of art, craft and design practitioners and questions how people perceive technologically crafted objects
Blown integrates traditional and digital practices, and in doing so creates a kind of craft that is more dynamic. Blown forces craft to be less monumental and more of an occurrence. Rather thanks distinct piece, Blown is an approach that invites viewers to create their own digital pieces by using the simple action of blowing a cup of teas. Blown is dynamic and democratic craft.
Attracted to Light
Attracted to Light narrates the erratic behaviour of a moth upon the stimulus of light. The trajectory is captured through cinematic technology and the echo of the path, materialized through rapid prototyping, forms a delicately poetic hanging lamp.
The Leith Pattern
The Leith Pattern continues the series of works that explores object materiality to capture the social and history of context and place. This work explores glass production in the port town of Leith, a suburb of Edinburgh in the late 18th century.
Dogfight narrates the interwoven trajectory of two moths’ playful behaviour upon meeting. The forms encapsulate the ephemeral echo of the moth’s erratic trail.
The Second Line
The Second Line is Scottish designer Geoffrey Mann's first ethnographical and biographical body of work that uses object materiality to capture the social history of New Orleans.
Eclipse is a further study by into encapsulating the ephemerality of time and motion. The triptych of sculptural lights materialize the erratic ephemeral traces of a moth circling three light source for 5 seconds. Each trajectory has been created through 3D motion capture gathering the phototactic behavior of a moth.
Poise explores the materiality of glass rather than glass the material. Interested in how movement can be suggested as echoes within material; encapturing either the language of process or the impact of environment.
The Secret Life of Shadows
The Secret Life of Shadows expresses the unseen physical trauma an object feels during the ‘event’ of its function. What if a perfume bottle could breathe? We could see it inhale with pride, exhale and deflate. By giving a human characteristic to a static object we can start to create the narrative of their Secret Lives.
