Installation shot of video projected onto debris netting, during Seven, MA interim show at CMR Gallery & Project Space, Redruth
March 2013 saw a month-long programme of research, development and collaboration by the artist members of CMR Gallery in Redruth. I found it an invaluable time to spend working out ideas for installation pieces, ahead of the interim show for the MA Fine Art course. I explored projection of some of the video pieces I’ve made from the night shoot in Godolphin Woods, incorporating other materials including debris netting to diffuse, obscure and enhance the images.
The emphasis is on research: offering the entire CMR membership space to develop, test and discuss work with other members and consider how the location & architecture – physical and organisational – of this independent, artist led, membership organism might best support their practices. Conversation during this month will help inform future programming.

The Unconference that was held at the end of the month saw us developing plans for the future that could include these kinds of events held regularly.

Working on a video installation for my interim MA show, which will be at CMR Gallery, Redruth… thanks to Pip the NT Ranger at Godolphin Woods and Laura the Visitor Experience Manager, I was able to film the ‘Trago Tree’ in the woods, with green gel spotlights placed to highlight the dips in the landscape where mining took place. Editing it now to create the piece that will go into the space at CMR… will be open to the pulbic Friday 19th April 7-9pm and then Sat 20th and Sun 21st April 10am-4pm.
