Colin Woods – Woodburner – Thursday 22 September – Saturday 15 October

COLIN WOODS POSTER WEB2

Please join us to mark the opening of Woodburner, a new installation by Colin Woods based on materials sourced during a house-sit at Broad Bay on the Otago Peninsula.

 

Woodburner is an audio and video installation by Colin James Woods, based on materials sourced during a house-sit at Broad Bay on the Otago Peninsula. Using sound as a class of found object, he has enhanced and transformed the recordings and diffuses them using his newly upgraded Programmable Interactive Speaker array (PiSA) to create an enveloping soundscape over 12 channels with video created from images of the flames. Inspiration for the piece comes from Colin’s visceral enjoyment of the ritual of lighting and tending the wood burning stove, and how it reminded him of lighting the open fire in his parents’ home back in Belfast. It also references Iannis Xenakis’ influential 1958 work Concrét PH.

 

Opens: Thursday 22 September, 5.30pm with refreshments provided by Liberty Brewing Company
Hours: 12 – 4pm, Tuesday – Saturday
Closes: Saturday 15 October
