Andrew Pepper, 'Three - Nine', 2016


Published in Shout

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, video camera, video monitor and shuttered theatrical spotlight

Size: Hologram 29 x 29 cm

Installation: Gallery floor

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.

Oblique Lean is one of a series of pieces developed during the Summer Lodge 2015 residency which takes place each year within the fine art studios at Nottingham Trent University. Part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, it attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image.

Much of our visual engagement with our environment is 'peripheral' - images and sounds just 'outside' of our field of focus. 

When approaching the floor-based installation the image of the illuminated hologram is displayed live on a cubic, cathode ray video monitor.  The structure of the shuttered light, which illuminates both hologram, monitor and floor, reflects the spatial structure found within the hologram.

Moving through the exhibition space an observer walks into the viewing zone of the holographic image which displays its dimensional image.  At this point the live video image is no longer visible.

Light Wedge 2018

Is a floor mounted installation made up of dichromate gelatine holograms supported by a wooden wedge.

Produced in collaboration with August Muth, the Light Foundry, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.

Originally shown in Art in Holography: Light, Space & Time at the Aveiro City Museum, Portugal.

This curated exhibition coincided with the 11th International Symposium on Display Holography, held at the University of Aviero and Light Wedge was shown in two versions.

The initial floor installation incorporated two plates and wooden wedge was displayed for the duration of the symposium.  For the remainder of the exhibition (until September 30th) a single plate lifted slightly from the gallery floor by the wooden wedge, was shown.

Making a Rock

Caroline Locke and Debra Swann

Collective National,
Nationalestraat 160,
B-2000 Antwerp, Belgium.

Opening 17 march — 7 p.m.
From 19 march till 9 april

Making a rock’ has been realised through the documentation of an ongoing performance by Debra Swann. 

Caroline Locke has composed sounds taken from recordings of Debra Swann ‘Making a Rock’. ‘Rock Music’ is presented in the gallery as part of the exhibition.

This is the first iteration of a collaboration by Locke and Swann.

‘Making a Rock’ explores the artist’s process. The unwieldy rock occupies the space. The object has become unmanageable, its presence in the gallery reflects on the pursuit of the maker. In a Sisyphean sense it is a futile act, commenting on relentless labour associated with everyday tasks.  

Here, it is juxtaposed with an overwhelming desire to make. You are witness to the process of the maker and the evolution of the object. A desire for form and sculptural language through the process of making are explored.

Rock Music explores sound in relation to domestic and labour intensive activity – the same vinyl record is played over and over. The sound of the activity becomes abstract and otherworldly when amplified. Mundane working involves repetition – a strange rhythm develops – a kind of chant, which, in turn becomes meaningful, even spiritual through the rituals of the everyday workload.

Andrew Pepper will be one of the artists in residence as part of Performing Drawology, taking place at the Bonington Gallery, School of Art and Design, Nottingham Trent University.

Fri 15 Jan 2016 - Fri 12 Feb 2016, Mon – Fri, 10 am – 5 pm

FLOCK MNEMONICS at The Collection, Lincoln


’Flock Mnemonics’ is a work for the The Collection's sound wall by Rob Flint, in response to the exhibition ’Stitch & Peacock’ by Danica Maier. The work examines the way humans understand & memorise bird calls through the use of ’mnemonics’ that mimic the bird’s cry in words, sometimes even naming birds, such as 'Chiffchaff', 'Crow', or 'Tit' in imitation of their cry.

In this sonic work the voices of children, themselves in the early stages of learning their own language, attempt to speak these strangely comic and musical words.

Maier’s work engages with textiles from the Usher Gallery Archives, selecting and emphasising pictorial birds found in the stitched, embroidered, and woven fabrics. ’Flock Mnemonics’ echoes these fabric processes by weaving children's ’bird’ voices into a loose sonic pattern across the sound wall, gathering itself into ’flocks’ - places of intensity where the isolated cries join in a sudden clamour.

The word 'flock' is sometimes used to describe a religious congregation of people whose voices are united in ritual. Here the 'flock' is a playfully imperfect chorus making a humorous comparison between the ’wildness’ of children and birds, and the way human voices and language impose patterns onto a world that doesn't have them.

Flock Mnemonics will occur throughout the duration of ’Stitch & Peacock’ as a 'dawn chorus' and 'evening chorus' at the daily opening and closings of the exhibition at 10am, and 3.45pm, with an additional lunchtime song at midday.

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, shuttered theatrical spotlight

Size: Hologram 29 x 29 cm

Installation: Gallery floor

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.


In the centre of a darkened space the rectangular hologram is displayed supported by a thin wooden plinth, illuminated directly from above by a shuttered theatrical spotlight.

Light falls onto the holographic surface, which in turn casts a shadow onto the floor below.  The installation is part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, which attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image.

From the initial approach to the work the image in the hologram is not visible, only the structural arrangement which supports the holographic space.

As the viewer changes their point of observation and moves within the vertical viewing zone of the hologram, a series of three planes, each with a rectangular space, becomes visible.

One of these virtual surfaces 'sits' directly on the picture place of the hologram's surface, one protrudes into the observer's space and the third recedes into the hologram's space.

Two works by Andrew Pepper are on show in St. Petersburg, Russia, as part of UNESCO’s Year of Light 2015 celebrations.

Vertical Liquid Supported and Lean, are included in a new exhibition space at the recently renovated Elisseev Palace. 

The show was launched at the start of an international symposium on display holography in June, and features examples of creative work in the field by a number of artists working with spatial imaging.  It continues until the end of October 2015.

Lean was developed partly within Nottingham Trent University's Summer Lodge and was most recently shown in Drawology at the Lanchester Gallery, Coventry University, UK.
