Room one

Fletcher, Dominique (2019) Room one. Village, Leeds.

Abstract

The output is a creative project, a collaboration between book designer, Dominique Fletcher and photographer Richard Higginbottom. Room One was created for the Index Visual Arts Festival in response to Yorkshire Sculpture International, where primary observations of how sculptural works are viewed within a gallery setting informed the photographic methodology. The exhibition was a response to the book created in response to these themes. Research process: Through a series of observational research, Fletcher and Higginbottom identified how sculptures are viewed in a gallery setting. They then translated this experience to both the photographer’s methodology of taking photographs of sculptural forms and the books design. Research insights: The research explored the use of the form of the book to emulate the experience of viewing, opening up questions around physical experience and the book form as a mode of communication. The exhibition explored how the book form and book design is translated to a physical environment, emulating the viewing experience of engaging with sculptural forms to the gallery walls, a direct reference to the book created alongside the exhibition. Dissemination: The project was disseminated via a book launch and exhibition at Village, Leeds, 12 September – 29 September 2019.
