It's been quite a year since Odyssey: Explorations in Liverpool and some members of the Odyssey Group have joined me online to work on an ambitious new digital project, one which has taken us out of our individual comfort zones to explore a whole new range of possibilities.
For this first stage of this project I'm working with Terri Broughton, Chen Mei-Tsen, Maureen Kendal, Nazia Parvez, Sarah Rubidge
In Boundless – Worlds in Flux we the collaborating artists invite participants to share their passion for our planet and its inhabitants both human and non-human.
We will invite viewers to navigate their way through the interrelated and interconnected artists’ worlds where they can access a range of experiences, stories, video clips, soundscapes. These hotspots for interactivity can be accessed easily and in any sequence, providing our visitors with an open-ended experience, one which can be revisited and always provide new insights. In some ways the experience will be similar to people dropping into a museum or public gallery and focus on different collections or exhibitions depending on what appeals to them and how much time they can spend there.
We are also creating a shared environment called Your Space where visitors can join the creative conversation and leave their own comments, video clips, photos, music/sound clips, poetry etc. This will be a generative space growing in size and complexity over time.
I will post further updates about the project in the coming weeks and months.
