Outreach workshop for people with early stage dementia during the period of my exhibition 15th June - 5th July 2020 at Coleman Project Space in Bermondsey, London. During the workshop participants will use a playful Origami folding technique to create three- dimensional photographic portrait sculptures that will be framed in a box frame and can be taken home afterwards.  Materials are included in the price. I would like to ask participants to send me their own photographs of loved ones upfront (preferable vintage photographs) and will colourfully prepare and reproduce them for the workshop.

During the workshop participants will cut - out the photographs and fold them into the third dimension using a playful technique.

"Ghost d' Luz" is a solo exhibition at Coleman Project Space London, 13th June – 5th July 2020

I believe participants would enjoy experiencing my immersive installation “Ghost d'Luz” and as a response could make their own piece of art. The exhibition is a poetic reflection about portrait photography and how it relates to memory of loved ones and the passing of time.

The free entry virtual reality experience is playful but thought - provoking and contains sound and animation. Visitors are taken on an interactive journey to communicate with three-dimensional photographic portraits of the long dead that become alive again through animation & audio.
