Digital projection Still from Collaborative project -> 127 Velocities
The latest installation is up @thesmallestgalleryinsoho ‘127 Velocities’ by London based artists Sequin Kay and Paul Mortimore. 127 Velocities is a modern-day statement on the philosophical view of the ‘sublime’ inspired by Immanuel Kant. In this contemporary creative practice, the duo weave together their practices to invite audiences to inquire on their perceptions of the sublime, through the powerful and arresting medium of Digital Contemporary Practice.
This visual piece is an experimental and dynamic fusion of traditional hand-crafted textile art by Kay and digital production mastery by Mortimore, where we see traditional embroidery techniques transformed through the lens of modern technology. Hand embroidered sequin crystal and bead embellished artworks have been documented through digital HD capture and re-constructed through cutting edge digital projection.
By merging their disciplines this immersive visualisation features a digital projection which is divided into 127 positional rings or Velocities. This produces numerous combinations of light of varying wavelengths.
