ASN final year student, Mungki Dewi, recently presented a further two outputs from her ongoing research into biophyllic imagery being used to slow viewers in the urban environment. Both projects used video, specifically filmed in the landscape by Mungki.
The work is developed from current research into therapeutic aspects of biophyllic art practice. See also – Blue
REFLECTIONS ON WATER SURFACE
Mungki’s Tent exhibition explored the ideas of using moving imagery to project calming, natural imagery – bringing the landscape into the city.
Six analogue monitors were displayed within Tent Gallery, oriented to be viewed from outside, each monitor showed films of reflections captured on water surfaces.
The length of each film and the sequencing varied, with black screen edited in. This created a dynamic display, starting with each monitor displaying different films, then some displayed the same film whilst some displayed blank screen. The sequenced, rhythm of the display echoing the movement of the filmed imagery.
On Thursday and Friday, 25-26 January, IN TIME was back-projected from the upper floor windows of John Knox’s House in Edinburgh. The tranquil film captured the movement of leaves blown by the wind in glistening sun light, in a mesmeric flow. The presence of ‘green’ in a ‘grey’ environment acted as an unexpected visual experience in the city’s bustling High Street.
