Figments is a collaborative work bringing together digital panoramic photography, image manipulation and performance. A series of seven images in which figments of urban life and a working forest collide. The viewer, surrounded by 360 degree scenarios, with cast of five actors, is invited to interact.
This work by Judy Gordon and David Barnett emerged from their residency in King’s Wood and at Kent Institute of Art and Design. It was commissioned by Stour Valley Arts as part of their international contemporary arts programme.
Each image is a response to different aspects of life in King’s Wood that the artists experienced during their six-month residency. This site-specific work was developed through visits, staying overnight, walking through the forest, recording conversations and making images in different seasons using digital photographs, video and sound.
Figments is available on CD-ROM (for both PC and Mac) from Stour Valley Arts.
