WORKING WITH VR

Tiltbrush, Quill and Masterpiece VR

With a postgraduate year in both Art and IT, she  has found it natural to use one to inform or support the other. This has culminated in working in VR, combining both areas of interest. She owns an Oculus Rift but has used HTC Vive and Oculus Quest. 

She has worked on a series of projects in conjunction with Visioning Lab including 'Release' for Tatton Estate based on their Moth and Butterfly collection, 'Pandemonium' for West Park Museum in Macclesfield and 'Gawain and The Green Knight'  for the LIT festival. Her work will also be featured in 'Groups of People' for Salford Quays, Quays Culture 'Lightwaves' festival beginning December 6th.

 

WORKING WITH TILTBRUSH

 

IMMERSIVE ART

Jacki has created Immersive art experiences and visual stories throughout her professional life, most recently being 'Gawain and The Green Knight' 2019, a collaboration with the 154 Collective for the LIT Festival in Macclesfield which drawn in Virtual Reality and videoed. The 154 Collective then edited it and added the sound tracking. It was presented as part of the Gawain and Green Knight trail in West Park, Macclesfield in a booth as a 'peep show'.. the viewer had to peer through a drilled hole in order to see it.

 She conceived and created 'Whisper of Moths' 2019 in collaboration with IDST where recycled plastic 'moths' (created by local school children through workshops) were suspended in a church with fishing twine so that the light from the stained glass windows interacted with them. IDST put motion sensors in place so that a whispering sound track was triggered as people walked through and underneath.

 'En Nour' in 2018 was created for the Barnaby Arts Festival using the theme 'Roots/Routes' and used sketches, smell, found objects, assemblage and video incorporating recorded on site sound and early vr tiltbrush work to give a sensation of a sailing journey to the Scilly Isles.

She uses a broad range of media to deliver and in the last two years this has included VR and 360 video.

 
 

PRINTMAKING

One of Jacki's degree specialisms was Printmaking and this is an area she still pursues today. She works in monotype and print, lino/relief, collagraph, engraving and etching. These often merge with the digital work and become part of the immersive installations.

 
 

SKETCHES

Doodles and designs

All ideas begin as sketches, some are transient thoughts and observations captured, some evolve into visual stories and different media.
