Mark Eaglen, a multi disciplinary artist has had an extraordinary large-scale Lightbox
produced by Metro which will be exhibited for the first time alongside evolving supporting works within Haus of Helfa, ‘a lost space’ located in a large Victorian building in the heart of Llandudno, North Wales and part of Llandudno Arts Weekend #2.
The unique piece of artwork on display is a result of Mark Eaglen's exploration into the relationships of Art, Science, Technology and Nature through a range of media and processes. Previous works have explored transitional forms created through video feedback, engaging with traditional techniques alongside cutting edge technological practices such as new developments in holography. Current developments have been responding to data collected by the European Space Agency of the Planck Cosmic Microwave Background Map.
Through manipulating and exploring the data from the ESA Planck space telescope, a form has been created that explores an external view of the observable universe, alongside discovering valued visual associations within much smaller scales. The piece is presented as a large-scale Lightbox
and can also be experienced through anaglyph 3D glasses.
Now in its second year, the Haus of Helfa showcases artists selected for residencies from a diverse group of contemporary artists including work by digital artists, sound and video installation artists, painters and contemporary crafts people.
The beautiful, crumbling building will have working artists in studios, as well as exhibitions and installations in its many nooks and rooms. Together they create an unusual and memorable labyrinthine experience that transcends the buildings’ history.
For 2014, the Haus of Helfa will present the work of Dion Hamer, Emrys Williams, Helen Jones, Angela Davies, Gareth Griffiths, Mark Eaglen, Pea Restall, Neil Coombs, Lisa Carter, Alan Whitfield, Sarah Middleton, Morgan Griffiths, Wendy Dawson and James Rielly through a diverse and vibrant range of responses within the building
