SAVE THE DAY: Public Collaboration project

Charlie Hooker

    Research output: Non-textual outputWeb publication/site


    This on-going project invites the general public to collaborate with Hooker to produce a one-off artwork that features place, time and symbolism specific to each participant`s personal life experience. It is intended to encourage a widening participation and dissemination of The Arts to people who have no direct experience of creating art works. A summary of the text that appears on the website is as follows:

    SAVE THE DAY Commemoration Pictures.

    These one-off Heliograph pictures are produced using a portable large-scale Sunshine Recorder which can be erected anywhere, in any location. The muti-media images that are placed into the device have sun-track lines scorched into them to produce a unique record of the time and place each recording is made and will vary in intensity depending on the location`s weather conditions. In this way, they produce a personal memory, symbolising Chance and Fate.


    An important part of my art practice involves collaborative projects. Over the years, these collaborations have involved notable scientists, musicians, dancers, gallery owners – for details go to the CV pages. The SAVE THE DAY Commemoration series offers YOU the chance to collaborate with me on the production of your own personalised unique picture.
