Digital Works

Cara Macwilliam

I was granted a DYCP from the Arts Council, England in March 2022 for 12 months of R&D. I was awarded this to develop the melding of my physical art with digital practice, whilst researching the embedding of accessibility from the onset of creation. The overarching concept being how inaccessible digital installation art is still to many people.

The projections were created initially from images of my hand drawn art, learning how to use Resolume to merge physical and digital art, whilst pushing the software outside of the VJ arena. This means my work can be projected allowing me to radically upscale my work, something difficult for me due to my disability. These are works from the unconscious, often with entities and beings coming out without intention. Automatism, intuition and layering as the process, which echoes how I work with physical material.
