Save the day competition: British Science Festival

Charlie Hooker

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

A central theme of the SAVE THE DAY project is community engagement. It links together Hooker's on-going research, to develop installations and images generated through solar and cosmic ray activity, to projects that encourage the general public to participate in the collaborative production of original art works.


All of these use sunshine, natural chemicals and water to produce one-off time-specific and site-specific images. The installation was located outside the University of Brighton Checkland Building, Falmer, featuring a large-scale Sunshine Recorder that scorches patterns into collaborative cyanotype designs that were selected as part of a British Science Festival competition.

Through Hooker's website (www.charliehooker.co.uk), this on-going project involves collaborations between participants and Hooker to produce artworks that each participant feels have unique personal relevance to themselves, regarding time, place and image. This process is outlined in the accompanying brochure.
