Workshop and Talk: Catch your Breath!
Sat 21 Sep @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PMFree
The human breath is the source of a wide range of chemical, auditory and physical exchanges with the environment. Jayne Wilton will explore the creation and context of works exhibited in the Catch Your Breath exhibition drawing on outcomes of several varied collaborations.
She will explore her quest to make material the dynamics of the ephemeral human breath using 2D, 3D and 4D media and will lead a workshop allowing participants to explore making breath visible in both 2 and 3 dimensions. Participants will be invited to investigate the breath’s ability to facilitate communication. The workshop activities will allow participants to experience processes used to create work exhibited in the current Catch Your Breath exhibition and in the session participants will have the opportunity to record their own breath visually, making permanent a trace of this usually transitory process.
This event is taking place on the Royal College of Physicians‘ Open House day, which will be the final opportunity for visitors to explore the Catch Your Breath exhibition in London before it makes its way to Bristol.
