Particle systems

Beautiful representation of a city through particle systems, could be another way to represent the environment?

Blind Light

This work by Antony Gormley creates an immersive space which invites the viewer to interact and become part of the piece. Something like this could work well for the exhibition. The atmosphere it creates is already reminisant of the aftermath of the bomb, as the sense of sight is taken away and the viewers must feel around to find their way.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki


Myself and Clarence are interested in exploring the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as part of the project. We think it would be a relevant area to explore as it was such a important moment in time which changed the world and effected so many lives. Also there are strong references to time, for example the reports of clocks stopping at 8.15 after the bomb went off. Please let us know what you think.

Here’s a quote from one of the survivors:

As Junod moved around the blighted city, he pieced together what had happened from various first-hand accounts:

… At about 8.15 a.m., when the inhabitants were going to work, a sudden blinding light, pink and white, appeared in the sky; this was accompanied by a sort of shudder, followed almost immediately by suffocating heat and a blast-wave sweeping away everything in its path. When we visited the ruined station in Hiroshima, the hands of the clock had stopped at this historic moment, 8.15…

An exhibition documenting the impact of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. On exhibit is a stopped clock.  Quite interesting to think of the impact the bomb had on time and the destruction which happened during that split second when it went off.

Christian Marclay: The Clock


Christian Marclay: The Clock

15 Oct—13 Nov 2010
Mason’s Yard

‘The Clock’ is constructed out of moments in cinema when time is expressed or when a character interacts with a clock, watch or just a particular time of day. Marclay has excerpted thousands of these fragments and edited them so that they flow in real time. While ‘The Clock’ examines how time, plot and duration are depicted in cinema, the video is also a working timepiece that is synchronised to the local time zone. At any moment, the viewer can look at the work and use it to tell the time. Yet the audience watching ‘The Clock’ experiences a vast range of narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, making time unravel in countless directions at once. Even while ‘The Clock’ tells the time, it ruptures any sense of chronological coherence.
