Interactive Stained Glass Window

 

Produced in collaboration with Amy Thornley.

 

 

The brief was to create a proposal for an installation be part of an upcoming Digital Arts Festival in Lincoln. A stained glass window inside Lincoln Cathedral called ‘The Bishop’s Eye’ inspired our installation; the window has a fractured kaleidoscope like appearance due to the fact the tower collapsed in the 12th Century. The broken pieces were re-assembled into a new design, meaning that in places you can see parts of the original window fragmented within it.

 

The idea is for the viewer to the filmed, their face or body fragmented and then placed within a stained glass window design, which can then be projected over the top of ‘The Bishop’s Eye’. So we produced a kaleidoscope that sits behind a sheet of stained glass and filmed through, capturing the user being fragmented.
