SpectrΔ 2015

This weekend Ive been helping out at Spectra Aberdeen, a fantastic light festival in the centre of Aberdeen in Union Terrace Gardens http://spectraaberdeen.com/. The festival was curated by Andy Brydon of curated place and brought together artists from across Europe.

The exhibition included work from 360 degree Immersion projection photographed in Iceland, AMAZE with light projected all around the maze, illumainated finger knitted blankets, Piano migrations trio with work filmed in Montrose Aberdeenshire, and one of my favourites work by a local artist Callum Kellie.

Here are some of my photos from the event, they only cover a small proportion of the festival, if you wanted to see more there is good coverage of the work on the spectra website http://spectraaberdeen.com/ and images on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/spectraaberdeen.IMG_20150215_110656

Piano Migrations Trio by Kathy Hinde – Pink Footed Geese were filmed during their migration in Montrose Aberdeenshire and the images projected onto deconstructed pianos.  Kathy constructed equipment to co-ordinate the geese’s movement to trigger the piano strings producing a unique sound with great effect!

Was great to see so many people of all ages coming down to the festival and enjoy the works.  Hope curated place can run the festival next year as was a great event.
