Danger Tree Exhibition
Today I was volunteer steward at ‘an interactive visual arts experience to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War created by award-winning artists Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot.
The exhibition depicts images of the Great War buried within Scarlett Raven's impressionistic landscape oil paintings. Each painting triggers augmented reality to reveal harrowing narratives of the fallen while reminding us of the impact on loved ones. The exhibition contains fascinating animation, music and wartime peotry narrated by acclaimed actors including Viking McClure and Sean Bean’.
The picture shows the animation which accompanied the painting in the background. It was my favourite on the floor I was stationed at, with a seagull navigating a changing seascape, lots of boats and seamen with a haunting soundtrack.
I was grateful for time out of the office as our restructure begins to hit individuals quite hard.
Grateful too for meeting some new people who were volunteering alongside me.
Finally grateful for the chance to hang around the exhibition.
