'WHISPER OF MOTHS' THE OLD SUNDAY SCHOOL HERITAGE CENTRE, MACCLESFIELD.
May 16th-June 16th 2019
Creator,curator and exhibitor. The 'Whisper of Moths' was originally a temporary immersive experience created for Chinese New Year celebrating Macclesfield's silk industry with China.It was commissioned by Macclesfield Town Council. Moths were created by local schoolchildren from recycled plastics and hung using fishing wire. Light and sound was then played through the hung moths using a Raspberry Pi and sensors (Nick Young)
This was in place for three hours.
Due to its success, it was requested that the experience was re exhibited and space was offered by Macclesfield Museums. It was revisited as an open exhibition using the theme of 'Whisper of Moths' and included work by Sabine Kussmaul, Jacki Clark, Loz Lees. Becca Smith, Lavinia Murray, Emma Lloyd and Nicola Carter.
'ART IN THE DARK' GROSVENOR CENTRE, MACCLESFIELD, CHESHIRE
13th August 2019
Curator, exhibitor. A community event which displays local artists work in luminous media. The community is invited in during the morning to create small canvasses from luminous stickers and tape inspired by the artists work already displayed there. In the light the works are bland, pale but when the lights are switched in the afternoon they glow and take on a different character.
