Transitions Art Group - Light and Sound

 In October and November of last year I had the pleasure of working again with the Transitions Art Group based at Orleans House Gallery in Richmond who meet every Monday afternoon.  The group had welcomed a number of new members since the previous year, now totalling ten participants, all with learning disabilities and some with additional needs.  

The theme for the workshops was light and sound and I was keen to make use of the iPads, exploring some new apps such as the sound activated Waves and animation app iMotion.


We started by making some light sculptures with a variety of materials, and continued on to develop the work, introducing sound and performance.  At the end of the four workshops we presented our work in the form of a large installation, with pop up performances as the audience were guided around the space.

Took me back to some of my early interdisciplinary work with learning disabled groups, with many special moments, some of which we captured within the project video.
