candelo village festival, 21-23 April 2017 - video art installation by artist craig cameron at st peters church
Craig Cameron's video art installation at St Peters church was a stunning highlight of the recent Candelo Village Festival. This one-off installation was available to the public during the twilight hours of the Festival and was both beautiful and popular. Read below for Craig's thoughts on the creative process and see some of the photographs that attempted to capture the vibrancy of his work.
"To be allowed such a beautiful, iconic and meaningful space to create an art work was the basis from where the idea came from. I saw it as a place of prayer and meditation and also a place of loss and joy and that was most important to me. I wanted to create a space that invited a person to be immersed in ones own self or inner reflection. The imagery was projected onto the inside of the church using its structure as the 'canvas'. To allow people to take in looping video and transient soundscape hopefully encompassed a place of contemplation and meditation. Most importantly for me was to respect the space and create an art work that wasn't about or for me, it felt gracious and I wanted to be able to see it for myself as work of dignity and humility." Craig Cameron
