SONIC LANTERN, TENDER BUTTONS | with Robert Baldock, Sharon Quigley
 

The Sonic Lantern re-imagines the magic lantern for the age of electronics. It’s a multi-viewpoint, analogue story-telling system which explores the intersections between theatre, cinema and video art and which allows performers to spontaneously create dramatic visual responses to sonic source material. This sound source is not just used to inform the performer’s response, however. It also plays a direct role in the performance as it is used to modulate the visual aspects of the system.
Presenting new work, an audio visual interpretation/ live performance of Gertrude Stein's, Tender Buttons with readings by Rainoir Clark, Seeing Sound 4, Bath Spa University.

THE DRAWING ROOM | 3D participatory drawing session with Sharon Quigley,
The Drawing Room is an informal, artist-led drawing session held monthly at the Gallery of Modern Art. Each session is developed by a contemporary artist and is inspired by an aspect of the modern collection whilst reflecting concerns within each artists own work. The Drawing Room examines the range of possibilities within contemporary drawing practice and explores how mark-making can also be conceived as sculpture, installation, video, performance, writing, sound, textiles and animation.
