Horizon: Projection show – with supporting activities Beyond the Horizon

Find out about the science and history behind the projection piece, Horizon in this event that lets you meet the creators and find out how to transform medieval ideas into modern art and research. Dedicated to medieval European science, interpreted through art, history and science, the project’s research underpins Horizon. Discover the medieval cosmos; the wider work of the project on natural phenomena from colour to comets and sound to sight; the science of perception; and artistic interpretations in glass, sculpture and film.

You can learn more about the Horizon projection here. Horizon will play every night of the Napa Lighted Art Festival on the Goodman Library. Watch the show and then come inside to find out how it’s made.

These activities are part of a series curated by the Ordered Universe Research Project and Durham University, UK, for the 2019 Napa Lighted Festival – Beyond.

About the Presenters

The projection piece Horizon featured in the Napa Lighted Art Festival was designed and created by Ross Ashton and Karen Monid of The Projection Studio.

DSC03655Ross Ashton was born in Sheffield in 1961. Having trained in photography and theatre he moved to London and began to work in video and slide projection. After spending four years in Paris working with a variety of visual media, he began specialising in High Power Projection in 1992. His years of experience have produced an instinctive understanding of the relationship between artwork and structure, light and surface, object and subject. The size and scale of his work has led to his being commissioned for both stand-alone works and broader based large shows designed and created for national and international audiences. His specially commissioned ‘son et lumière’ have received world-wide attention. His reputation for large scale spectacular pieces mean that he has created projections as commemorations for governments around the world. He has also collaborated with other artists and lighting designers in the production of shows from Rock & Roll to classical concerts and theatre. His expertise has also been called on for numerous film and television productions. His work has been seen by millions throughout his career and never fails to be thought provoking, moving and exhilarating.

DSC03695Karen Monid is an audio artist and designer, creating soundscapes and sound installations. She works in many fields including outdoor public events, arts festivals and exhibitions and has an extensive background in theatre and production. She is an experienced researcher and scriptwriter and is particularly skilled at working collaboratively with project partners and groups. Her skills include creating sound works for son et lumière productions, incorporating her deep knowledge and long established expertise in architectural projection.

The event Beyond The Horizon will be delivered by the Ordered Universe team.
