Within the Wake (2022) Multi-channel Video Installation, 4 min, Dimensions Variable
Within the Wake Is an ensemble of sound, sculpture and video exploring time, technology and motion. Drawing upon the proximity of CNC Robotics in relationship to the Leeds Liverpool Canal the installation immerses you in a voyage of re-animated industrial artefacts, transitional objects and ethereal sounds. Shifting the viewer from the present and bringing them closer to the journey itself, the work propels through the passing landscape of technology. Recalibrated machines, synchronise with mechanised voices and robotic sounds, reverberating conversations between the past and present. This transformation echoed within extruded metallic sculptures signalling transportation, innovation and velocity. This activated, physical assemblage creating a timeline of momentum, a wake within the arterial route.
Within the Wake has been produced in collaboration with CNC Robotics and Art in Manufacturing, the headline commissioning programme for The National Festival of Making (supported by Arts Council England).
