Brass Art work with scanning technologies such as 3D (Lidar) and 4D (Kinect on-range sensors) to capture collaborative performances in unusual settings. The research foregrounds Virginia Woolf’s stream of consciousness as a performative methodology to record the artists’ presence in her Writing Room (Rodmell, UK). The project necessitated a great deal of care as the tiny museum space is usually viewed from behind glass, by the public. Brass Art captured the dynamics of this threshold space without leaving a physical trace. In daring to progress their experimental performative approach - using ‘colour filters’ to disrupt the binary shadow realm and exploring the future potential of virtual reality - Brass Art aim to bring this muselogical setting alive for new audiences.
