Jessie Ford & Theresa Caruana

‘New Eyes Experiment 02’

Following the successful launch of ‘Experiment 01’ in December at St Andrew’s Church, Chardstock, artists Jessie Ford and Theresa Caruana presented their second large-scale public digital projection event upon the hills and woods of Lee Hill, Membury on Saturday 14th April 2007 from 8 – 10 pm.

Experiment 02 celebrates the beauty and diversity of the Blackdown Hills landscape and its communities, placing photographic and video images, taken from the region, back onto the landscape they were born out of. This series of experimental digital events aimed to explore the possibilities of digital technology, make a contribution to contemporary digital art practice and foster an exchange between human society and the natural environment we all depend upon.

‘New Eyes Experiment 01’

The first part of Jessie Ford and Theresa Caruana's commission happened on Saturday 9th December 2006 when large scale projections were beamed on to the exterior and interior of St Andrews Church in Chardstock near Chard, Somerset. The aim of this large scale projection entitled ‘Experiment.01’ was to celebrate the beauty and diversity of the Blackdown Hills landscape and it’s communities.
