Allison Moore's Production Residency

Allison Moore's Production Residency
Dates: 
Tuesday, July 30, 2019, 4:30 pm to Friday, August 16, 2019, 5:00 pm

Montreal-based new media artist Allison Moore spent two weeks (July 16-30) working out of Open Space as she embarked upon research and development for a video mapping project at the Fisgard Lighthouse. The production residency saw her develop a new work that will culminate in a video projection mapping event at the historic lighthouse proposed for the summer of 2020.
 
 
During her time in Victoria, Moore gathered footage of the land surrounding the lighthouse, met with Parks representatives, and consulted with lighthouse historians who were able to share stories of the lighthouse and lighthouse keepers past. Moore held open gallery hours and presented an artist talk in which she opened up the process of creating a video installation based around the lighthouse. Over the next year, Moore will gather these pieces through her unique collage and animation methods into a visual-poem tribute to the lighthouse that opens up the majestic poetics of landscape, the surrounding weather systems, and unique marine ecosystems of the coast.
 
 
Check out photos from her residency and stay tuned for the presentation of the project next summer!
 
 
 
In conversation with Allison's residency, Open Space staff held an activity at this year's Moss Street Paint-In to invite the public to colour in drawings of the Fisgard Lighthouse. We then compiled these drawings to create a collaborative animation of the lighthouse inspired by Allison's animation practice. Click the sidebar icon to enlarge the animation!
 
 
Thank you to all who contributed to the collaborative animation! Artists include...
