Exploring visual sound, form and visual perception. These works will come together in an exhibition based in London
My name is Kate Lumsden, I’d love to tell you about this kickstarter project,
I’m an illustrator and sculptor and When I sculpt -I mainly work in wire, up until this point I have usually worked to commission or creating fun stuff down at my children’s school, volunteering there over the last 10 years or so has really shaped my ideas on what sculpture should do to inspire, delight and amuse those who come into contact with it.
I’ve started making sculptures and ideas for work to have in a show, which I am aiming to put on in October 2012 in or near London,
I have never hosted my own show before or had the time to concentrate on a cohesive theme for a body of work,
I’d really love to have the chance to get my work out there with your help.
The theme of my show is already decided - its going to be called “Perhaps I’ll be a bird someday..”
So what has inspired me so much, well I’ve been reading around quite a bit of Physics, particularly Cymatics, which is the study of visible sound and vibration.
I am struck by the beauty of the notion that- the universe is in a constant state of vibration, - what we see and colours we perceive are just the parts of of vibration we can tune in to, it is the exploration of the substance of things not seen..
so, I want to work on a series of sculptures that show my interest in this ceaseless movement of form and energy. raising the viewer’s perception of the form in front of them -(starting with animal and bird forms)
in my reading I was really struck by a line in a book - ‘Sound takes random particles and turns it into Form’..
I have a wonderful friend who directs community choirs and writes music - and we talked about making sound and writing specific music to be part of the exhibition, I love the idea that each piece has a sound that resonates with its form.
what your generosity will provide is the means to hire a great space for about a week in or near London, and I will need to to hire a van- because I may look a bit eccentric carrying a menagerie of wire animals on my head along the street. I need to print invites and work out how to play or create music to accompany the sculptures, I need the display to be amazing and the overall experience to get people thinking.
Most importantly your pledge will help buy time… time to spend in the gallery, time to play with sound and time to create something marvelous for you to say thank you for your wonderful support.
I’m going to pour all of my time and energy into this -I hope you will add your energy too
-I hope you will be part of this moment
