the title suggests, it is the Language of Pots, the way they
speak to us that I have explored in this project. Published
as a CD-ROM it is part of INSITE, a collection of 10 original
digital artworks commissioned by Suffolk County Council and
are available to view at selected libraries across Suffolk or
are available on loan.
out as a number of interactive multimedia pages, viewers explore
the CD-ROM from an opening home page. There is no set order
or narrative but I think there is a logic in a clockwise navigation
of the page icons.
the commission brief the first pages are informative, giving
viewers an insight into my approach to pottery. Pages on morphology
are followed by a sound page. I then look at how multimedia
technology can by used, concentrating particularly at Quick-Time-VR.
to make some new work, 'Globe Series' and 'Mirrored Forms' are
pages of virtual pots. Globe Series explores ideas of how pots
reflect the maker and his/her environment. Mirrored Forms are
experiments in symmetry. Finally a virtual sketchbook holds
material generated during the project.
