Project summary:

I propose a multidisciplinary research project, The outcome being hand finished artworks and uniquely composed sonatas. The disciplines are, photography, music, screen printing, illustration.
Project Overview:
This project involves a 7-part interactive photography and music outcome. An artistic intervention into the life and work of John Ruskin, showcasing a unique and multidisciplinary look at traditional but overlooked RGB Still Life Photography process and Contemporary Classical Organ Music reconnecting the 7 Lamps of Ruskin’s work, and made accessible for contemporary audiences.

The artworks having a significance to areas of Ruskin’s life and works. For example, the first piece (Sacrifice) is inspired by St. Lukes Church in Torver, Cumbria where Ruskin visited and commented on the style and significance of the architecture. The artwork would include reference to his mathematical approach and the design would emulate his illustrative work in his books. Such as ‘The 7 lamps of architecture’ (1894) and ‘ The stones of Venice’ (1886).

The work will consist of 7 x A2 framed wall prints accompanied by QR codes linking to an external platform (vimeo/youtube) for the musical elements where the audience can engage through personal devices.
