ARTIST / DESIGNER / EDUCATOR

PHYZOG III

 

I first experimented with anamorphic reflectors in the late 1980's as a student. In 1999 I created an installation at the Visual Research Centre at Dundee Contemporary Arts using interactive animated projections as part of the process. Recently I created a new piece entitled 'Phyzog III' which was shown in Dundee city centre in November 2017.

 

With this piece I was able to marshall contemporary motion design and 3D animation techniques to update the work. The theme of the piece was 'Light' and the inspiration based on a Martin Luther King Jr quote:

 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that.

 

This work was part of Dundee 'Christmas Light Night' 2017. My key interests was to engage the audience in a rewarding experience and to get children excited about the piece.We had some fantastic reactions from kids and families on the night.

 

My grateful thanks go to John Gray and his team at Dundee City Council for their commitment in realising this public art installation.
