Projection workshop

Emergency, 2008. Beyond the Window, Bus Gallery. from Yandell Walton on Vimeo.

This week I've been attending a workshop with Yandell Walton organised by Wagga Wagga City Council.

It's been really inspiring to meet a diverse cohort interested in projection, as each bring their own aesthetic and experience. I've also been inspired by Walton's open and supportive approach to workshops, particularly the opportunity to read her masters thesis and be better informed about her work. Often visiting artists can be unwilling to share their skills but she has shown us many aspects of her practice, from the technical to the administrative.

I'm also really taken with the work above, Emergency (2008). It's a collaboration with photographer Clare Hassett that illustrates Walton's interest in death and also updates the style of William H. Mumler.
