Altered Space 4:
3D Audio Visual Interactive.
A three screen, motion sensor driven interactive installation. Wearable space emerges out of the interlacing body and architectural space, with a sensory richness that catalyses bodily response. The effective body is the capacity of the body to effect space through embodied perceives.
1080p HD, 3:30, DV, Stereo Digital Matte Painting Video Art displayed in the basement vault. An outlook on Ascension and the persistence of loss influenced by Taoism, communist advertising, She'ol and Fight Club.
A Lesson In Perspective
A performative text based work. Bedell is an artist based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who works primarily with text. She is concerned with the ways in which we receive and interpret meaning, and how context and perspective can change and subvert this process.
With performance from Genevieve Stone and the Singing Potts in collaboration with the Durham Dancers, Mark Bleakley and Kate Stobbart on the preview evening.

Without Lines examined the temporary object, the transient space and the fictional narrative. Through varying collations of source material which relate both to fact and fiction, the works in this exhibition seek to manipulate our perception of an exact object or place. Materials or locations cannot be clearly identified, which allows for connections and narratives to be bent. Without Lines combined five Newcastle University Fine Art students working in various media including painting, sculpture and video.
A body of work dating back to 1994 exploring the lost landscape of cranes at Swan Hunters shipyard. See More info at about the artist section for more details.
