A collaborative installation of light projected imagery for the Thames Tunnel Shaft of the Brunel Museum by Anne Krinsky & Tom Pearman.
This installation merges Krinsky's video footage of the river and its architecture with Pearman's animations of faux tunneling forms, inspired by Brunel's Tunnel and Tunnel Shaft.
The artists developed their collaboration within the Tunnel Shaft and are projecting their images directly onto its rough curved walls. Krinsky says, "The tunnel shaft itself dictated the kind of images that worked within it. Because it is not a clean white space, our imagery needed to be quite graphic to hold its own. Tom's geometrical animations – when overlaid on my video footage – create intriguing visual relationships."
Pearman comments, "My work often investigates faux three-dimensional form, while at the same time exposing the physical processes involved in making it. My ‘engineered' projected forms in the Tunnel Shaft combined with Anne’s video explore the juncture of what can be discovered above and below the Thames."
Anne Krinsky works across analog and digital media – painting, printmaking, photography and projection. Visual and historical research underpins her recent practice and she has made installations in response to archived materials in the US, UK and India.
Since moving to the UK from Boston in 2012 she has received an Artists International Development Fund Grant and two Arts Council England Grants for the Arts.
Tom Pearman has worked extensively in the public realm, creating projects for architectural firms, private and public galleries, the NHS, public art commissioning agencies and local authorities. His recent large-scale projects include a cladding system for a new council office building in Bedfordshire, and a Cleaner Air Awareness project across six South London locations, funded by the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund. His projects often include participatory community events.
