InSites Design: Annie Lovejoy / Mac Dunlop
"Developing artwork in response to a particular place or context, with people whom the work will affect, demands a flexibility that relies upon a belief in the value of such processes and a consequent commitment to their evolvement." Dr Roz Hall 2008
We're interested in creating work in response to particular sites, places or situations generated through shared experiences and collective activities.. we like to explore ideas with people who the work is for.
These ‘site responsive’ processes require flexible, open minded approaches to ideas, designs, materials, technologies etc, so that bringing ideas into reality is as sustainable and ‘robust’ (adaptable to changing needs, and low-maintenance over the long term) as possible. We consider it to be environmentally responsible to prioritise local expertise in the development and production of project work.
The resulting outcomes utilise media and production forms appropriate to the circumstance or situation.
Previous outcomes have included: planted landwork, audio / visual installations, live works / events, publications / design for print, large scale image production, architectural glazing, sensor-led lightworks (eg. responding to sound or temperature levels), sculptuaral signage / landmarks. See some of these projects here.
We both have a practical and academic background in context-led arts. We actively encourage dialogue and collaboration in the development of public art projects; and are experienced in managing aspects of production such as: planning issues, scheduling, commissioning, supplier / contractual liaisons etc.
Shared skills, experience and qualifications include: architectural glazing design, digital imaging, sculpture, DTP, audio & video production, CAD, interactive media, metalwork fabrication, project and event management, CACDP Sign Language Certificate Level 1., Post Grad. Fine Art qualifications and research, workshop facilitation, teaching and external examining.
