Richard Bowers will be based at Shift throughout October working on a Arts council Wales funded R&D project, Sunlight and Dirt.
Richard will use sound recording, composition and arrangement, video and architectural installation, to explore aspects of time and memory; of what constitutes our perception of self and of the elements of our personal history that elude our memories as we age; of identity as seen through our own memories and through the perceptions of others transmitted to us over time. Sunlight and Dirt brings forward images and sounds – creative and documentary – into a stylised replica of a room in the artists childhood home.
Throughout the research period at Shift, Richard will have open studio days sharing his process and the developing project.
