Event description

Description

Video artist Sapphire Goss will lead this free workshop for families of walking, filming and gathering plants. This workshop will include learning some simple editing techniques which can be replicated on your own phone to create beautiful moving artworks. This will involve a gentle 45 minute stroll, so please come in weather appropriate clothes for this section of the workshop. By the end of the day, participants will have created a beautiful floral inspired video artwork, and a toolbox of techniques for their future explorations.

Please bring a picnic and we will eat together in the gardens if the weather permits. This event is intended for families, and we welcome those who wish to come as a group. Those under 16 must not come unattended.

Sapphire Goss:

Sapphire is one of 10 commissioned artists taking part in Tracing the Pathway's project Groundwork and is currently working towards the creation of a new work titled Eternity City which will be presented at the Groundwork Weekender (14-16th September 2018).

Sapphire is an artist researcher working primarily in film, She creates collaged compositions from elements of footage, archive and video snapshots, often remixed and performed live. She makes films using experimental techniques, playing with textures and surface and using unusual patterns with light, fragments of archive and found footage with more traditional filmed elements to create abstract animations that have a physically tangible, textural quality. This layered style creates work that has a physically tangible, textural quality and evokes dream narratives, creating concurrent motifs, shifting patterns and layers of consciousness. With a background studying film and visual anthropology her work investigates ideas of place, culture and memory. This might take the form of installations, documentaries, commissions, workshops or live events. She is interested in engaging with overlooked, ignored or forgotten spaces, often within a challenging community context. She grew up in Milton Keynes and currently lives in Folkestone.
