As Below So Above

16 Aug
Artwork for As Below So Above; an abstract experimental journey through growth, decay, the interconnections of the underworld and life on earth above it. Curated by musician and artist Richard Knox. Commissioned by The Tent People for Festival Sessions 2022. A 3 hour live a/v installation. Sunday September 4th, 7pm-10pm, The Festival Sessions, Hayfield.

It’s been a long time, though I’m not the most regular of posters at the best of times.

However, for the past few months or so (maybe longer, time is a blur) I’ve been working on a rather epic undertaking, a three hour experimental film to accompany a live music performance at a festival in Hayfield this September.

I’m very excited about finishing the piece – currently in the last stages, fingers crossed – and it’s certainly been very different to anything I’ve attempted as an editor before (though it echoes photography projects I used to work on that almost became the artwork for a popular indie band’s third (or fourth) album; Hint: It was Los Campesinos!

Here’s what The Tent People wrote about the project:

“We absolutely could not be more excited to tell you about our Festival Sessions finale piece. This amazing, immersive, installation has been curated by our pal and creative wonder, Richard Knox and commissioned by us to take you on an experimental journey through growth, decay, the interconnections of the underworld and life on earth above it……

As Below So Above is an audio and visual installation that explores the connections between the complex and fascinating networks that control the underground and the similarities and consequences of human behaviour living above it. The cyclical nature of this work provides a framework for experimentation, for themes to return and for the infinite possibilities of the natural world to unravel.

The immersive installation will feature a constantly evolving live soundtrack performed by Richard Knox, Claire Knox and Luke Bhatia alongside an experimental film by Owain Paciuszko. The tent will be transformed into a cocoon of light and sound and will also feature specially created fabric hangings by designer and printmaker Lauren Riley.
