Part Coded and the Bi-Visual

Part Coded and the Bi-Visual has been Arts Council funded enabling me a period of time to research, through practical and theoretical methods, my proposition that the morals, ethics and values of ‘The Empire’ were embedded within Children’s Victorian Magic Lantern Slides. Working in collaboration with Dr Mark Lorch of The University of Hull’s Chemistry Department has seen us alter digital inkjet prints with silver nitrate based chemical applications. Phil Ratcliffe and I re-designed some old microscope boxes into viewing machines referencing a Magic Lantern and a Camera Obscura. Sited inside these are contemporary toy projectors ‘Projecteo’ which play altered magic lantern images. The exhibition showed at The Ropewalk February 27th-April 17th 2016.
