Abstract

Portfolio/body of work produced in partnership with The European Music Archaeology Project 2016 - 2018. The Intention of this EMAP research project was to highlight Europe’s ancient cultural roots through a series of musical, scientific and sensorial photographic inquiries that explored and went beyond the traditional observational and illustrative uses of photographic practices - with a brief that challenged photography as an archaic practice: to explore new cultural and technological shifts within current photographic research methodologies, processes and Image production workflows. In order to capture, reproduce and communicate visually the sound, spirit and memory of the ancient musical instruments photographed. In particular this research project critically examines and explores the synaesthetic ability of photographic light to capture and communicate the sound, aura and memory embedded within the Tintignac Carnyx (a reconstructed 2000 years old Bronze Age Celtic trumpet.) Exploring the ethereal quality of digital light paining techniques and the composite image in constructing a cultural narrative.
