These are taken from the current Degrees Of Vision Show at Bankfield Museum, Halifax. This time, “The Secret Life Of Objects”, showcases the residency with a display cabinets where a variety of collected objects that children engaged with during the residency are arranged with photographs taken by of their children’s arrangements during the project. The film also plays alongside the display case.

Earlier this week I took the film into school so that any children who wanted to look at the film were able to. We made a little dark room using blackout material to be our cinema. It was very intimate, only four at a time could squeeze in, but I really liked this as it meant there could be a bit of chat as the film was showing, but without it getting too distracting. The small dark space combined with light being projected through the small projector was exciting, and there was a lot of experimenting with the beam of light in terms of creating shadows.
As part of the Degrees of Vision Link Show at Dean Clough I have a curious cabinet that showcases the Secret Life of Objects residency. It runs until 18th July.
The Secret Life Of Objects
I have been too busy for a long time to add entries to the blog. For the last month I have been getting the “Secret Life Of Objects” installation together. I decided to hold it as part of the “Degrees of Vision” final show for Leeds Met. BA in visual studies from which I am also graduating. I meant to blog DURING the show when I was in residence alongside the installation, but in the end there was such a steady trickle of people coming into see the exhibition that there was too much talking and discussing to do. So for those of you who didn’t see the show here are a few photos to give you a flavour. And I have just put together a showcase of the installation in the form a cabinet of curiosities as part of the grand tour of the “Degree’s of Vision” show (see the website) at Dean Clough Art Gallery in Halifax. This open on Saturday 19th June and runs for a month. Thank-you to all the people who talked to me and told me about objects in their lives and things they have collected. You have given me a lot to think about. I will think about how to share the comments on the blog.
