NERVOUS SKIES - A collaborative work by Amelia Bande, Deborah Bower, Mat Fleming & Annette Knol at NewBridge Project Space

As a self-confessed lover of colour, NERVOUS SKIES - A collaborative work by Amelia Bande, Deborah Bower, Mat Fleming & Annette Knol at NewBridge Project Space is a delight to my eyes.


"It’s the latest addition to their Gel Film series, an installation of 16mm film, slides and text. Text and colour collide in a light show, which is as vibrationally intimate as it is technically spectacular. Multiple projections dance a thin line between oscillation and stillness. The piece seeks to bring about emotional resonances, by precisely cut intense colour rhythms and chance symbiotic relationships in the mind, the eye and the heart.


Nervous Skies was written collectively using automatic writing experiments. The four artists contributed with short texts produced fast and non-stop which were activated by prompt start phrases. The material was collected and edited into a single story by Amelia Bande."


The enjoyment of colour, texture and movement within Nervous Skies reminds me of some of Norman McLaren's animations.
