Process - Light Projection & Shadow

Tuesday, 25 February 2014 12:59 Published in Workshops

As part of the delivery for first year students on Nottingham Trent University's fine art course a number of 'process' mini-workshops were offered early on in the year.  

Students had not been at the university long and were still in a state of 'adjustment' to academic life and the independent study required by the course.

These workshops offered a rapid taster of possibilities which might be applied to current work or ideas.  They aimed to act as a catalyst or point of departure.

Andrew Pepper offered a Light & Shadow workshop which was made up of 2 two hour practical seminars on a single day.

Session one explored the interception of projected light from 35mm slide projectors in a dark workshop space.

Session two moved out into the relative brightness of the fine art studios and examined the interference of light and marks produced by overhead projectors and object place on them.




Coherent Points

Monday, 01 July 2013 01:00 Published in Projected Light

Title: Coherent Points

Date: 2013

Edition: Unique

Materials: Helium-neon laser scanner, rotating object, elastic, electric motor.

Size: Structure 1 x 1 x 1 M

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge, a research project in the fine art studios of Nottingham Trent University, School of Art and Design, Nottingham UK.
This series of experimental projections used a meter cubed structure to intercept the coherent lines of light scanned from a heliun-neon laser scanner.
The points of light 'shift' and orbit within a 1 x 1 x 1 M volume.


Time-laps of cubic meter volume and path of coherent light points as they trace paths through the structure.

Detail of lines and points generated by the scanned laser light as it is intercepted by the rotating structure.





Random Cube Rotation

Tuesday, 01 January 1980 00:00 Published in Projected Light

Title: Random Cube Rotation

Date: 1980

Edition: Edition of 10

Materials: 35mm photographic slide, slide projectors, projected light, rotating object, elastic, electric motor.
Size: Structure 1 x 1 x 1 M

Notes: Light from a 'drawing' of a cube is projected onto the slowly rotating sculpture in a dark space. Only the effect of this light being 'intercepted' can be seen. Not the sculpture itself.
The result is a constantly moving 'volume' of tiny dots of light which describe the volume of a cube.
Shown at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, and a New Contemporaries prize winner.
This work eventually lead onto experiments with holography and the Line Addition piece.


Curved String

Sunday, 01 January 1978 00:00 Published in Projected Light

Title: Curved String

Date: 1978

Edition: Installation

Materials: 35mm photographic slides, slide projectors, projected light, rotating string, electric motor.
Size: Structure 100 x 50 x 400 CM

Notes: Light from a 'drawing' of a cube is projected through two rapidly rotating strings which form a curved (three-dimensional) screen
The projected image slowly moves from left to right causing the reconstructed image, in space, to shift and 'redraw' itself.
A paper describing this work and its development is published in the Leonardo, Journal of Contemporary Visual Artists.
