Original Site Info:

You'll find examples of research projects, community arts and commissions by media artist Jackie Calderwood on this site. The site was developed by Jackie as part of 'Reframe' project 2007, funded by Arts Council England, to create new work combining glass, moving image and the web. It also shows work from projects including a gps (location-based) audio-visual walk, digital murals from a residency with junior school children, touch-screen

The pictures at the side of this page are of glasswork made during Reframe, and will change each time you refresh the page. Click on one of the pictures to see a larger version.

There are also small 'maquettes' or demos, to play with -- create a daydream, or play the quiz about the Avon New Cut. Also in Other Work there's news about the successful Dads Matter Too project - impact of the DVD, Calendar, Blog, Arts Award and winning the Princes' Trust Community Impact Award SouthWest 2008 and Centre for Social Justice awards 2009.

Have a look at Jackie's extended practice 'Transitions' combining museum touchscreen, glasswork and locative media - 'extendeed practice' for MA Media (Interactive Arts) shown at UWE 13-18 June 2008 and also presented at the mscapefest '08 in Belfast: slideshow of Jackie's work with mediascapes and video clips of Something More and Evolving Landscapes from the presentation.

Recent work (2009-10) can be found on linked sites:

  • e-merge _ a filmmaking mediascape, funded by Arts Council England, ran daily at the ICA during Birds Eye View Film Festival 2009. More about e-merge on the BEV blog and at the e-merge project-development blog. The e-merge walks gallery shows 101 traces of walks made during the festival, a further 62 made by evening players at the *10 Sandpit, and the unique film compositions resulting from each walk. e-merge was remapped to locations in the SouthWest for SouthBank Arts Trail, Dot.biz, Worle enrichment week.
  • Resident at the Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol from March to September 2009, Jackie developed the e-merge model for Ambience - a filmmaking mediascape with a collaborative community response for the Bristol Festival 2009. Submissions from 23 local filmmakers (from first-time edits to the pro's) and 6 local bands combined into a wonderful snapshot of the city harbourside for mediascape and large-screen playback.
  • As a founder member of Strata Collective, the 'Sightlines' project has been incubating since November 2008. Sightlines follows a Neolithic journey across three counties at the heart of Wessex. Two public sonic mediascape events trialled music by Jane Harwood and Russ Stanley at Avebury, Wiltshire (with DramaNet) and at Sand Point, North Somerset.
  • Strata's first project 'Soundlines' (a community-building and creative educational experience doubling as r&d for Sightlines) is supported by the Pervasive Media Studio and funded by Awards For All and South West Screen. Working in Weston super Mare with Worle, Priory and Locking schools, North Somerset Museum, the local community, eShed and guest artist-facilitators from September 2009 to April 2010, strands of story, history, animation, music, film, mediascape and web will weave together into a multi-platform community celebratory event.
  • Pendennis Portraits with young volunteers and English Heritage Outreach, delivered photography outreach-with-a-twist over the summer 2009. Over 100 creative portraits of local people were exhibited as a trail around the site of Pendennis Castle, Falmouth, for Heritage Open Days, September 2009. 60+ people dropped in to the castle keep to continue the dialogue and become a part of the exhibition, which has since moved to Victoria Park, Truro.
