River Drawing Experiment Video

I wanted to experiment with mixing some of the material I had gathered from moving image, night time stills and drawings from the off cuts of boat building from the Workman’s Boat Club. I am interested in layering the media and materials echoing the forms and blurring between drawing and still image and looking at the moving image as a constantly moving tracing line so sometimes the forms hover or appear to be there like an afterimage or echo.

Rowing Video Projected

We have been experimenting with projecting videos from the project in the natural and built environment along the towpath in preparation for the Sounding Lines Multimedia Art Trail this Saturday 30th August 11am-4pm starting from Kilsheelan (first 2.5km along towpath towards Carrick on Suir) as part of National Heritage Week. All welcome!

 

 

Here a short video from one of the arched Boat Sheds.

On our last walk along the River Suir we met with John Quinlan – local historian and character. His family have lived alongside the river since the early 1800s and he told us fascinating stories of the history of the bridge at Kilsheelan and how it was blown up during the Civil War and the role this had in local history. John was responsible for campaigning for a plaque commemorating the soldier killed when it was blown up. We hope to reivist John and record some of his stories.

Peculiarity and Particularity of Form

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was really struck by the wooden forms in the Workman’s Boat Club – the peculiarity and particularity of these forms to the boat building craft and the refinement of these forms so that each one fits, it just fits. I would like to work with these drawings further – they may form the stills of a short film.

Suir Dragon Paddlers

We were privileged to be invited to go out paddling with the Suir Dragon Paddlers last Friday. Suir Dragon Paddlers – CRC is a dragon boat team of breast cancer survivors their friends and families of all ages and abilities, set up in February 2013.  Amazing for us to experience the team work and the beautiful sounds and the rhythms created by the paddlers. Here’s a short video.
