SDNA produce innovative digital media installations and public art projects. As Creative Producer for the organisation, I have raised £100k and led projects including Sonic Rebound - a series of music composition and digital media workshops for young people; Creature - a project bringing together digital media arts, physical performers, sound artists and neuro-scientists to explore the relationship between live performance and cutting-edge interactive design; and Electric Bloom.
Electric Bloom was an ambitious public art and community engagement project exploring Hackney’s hidden histories and narratives. I led a team of artists and coordinated a programme of workshops in textiles, film & animation, visual art, spoken word, garden design, music and sound art, which invited Hackney residents to create artworks exploring key moments in Hackney's history and reflect on the boroughs gentrification. I project managed a public events programme including an exhibition showcasing participants work at National Trust heritage site Sutton House, an immersive mobile app and sound walk, an original Electric Bloom composition, and the launch of 6 public art installations projected on to key historical sites including St John’s at Hackney Church, St Augustine’s Tower, Morning Lane and Churchwell Path.
I produced a report proposing Electric Bloom as a compassionate approach to regeneration through valuing history and resident’s emotional connection to place.
Electric Bloom was supported by Arts Council of England, London Borough of Hackney and PRS for Music Foundation.
