Keeping up Momentum - Peep Show with Hayley Lock
Time & Location
About the Event
The next ‘Keeping up momentum’ session with OCA tutor Hayley Lock is titled ‘Peep Show’, where you will consider ‘the box’ as a mode of escape as well as confinement.
To set the scene, the Peep show or Raree show can be traced back in time to 15th century Europe, specifically to Leone Battista Alberti, an author, philosopher and cartographer who devised a mechanism to look at perspective views through a small hole in a box. A raree show, peep show or peep box historically is an exhibition of pictures or objects, viewed through a small aperture or magnifying glass.
There are many references historically to the playful, to the exotic, to the voyeuristic and to the frame over history and in the first session Hayley will present a range of work and contextual considerations that reference all of these elements in equal measure. You will be asked to bring a range of limited materials to these sessions to consider, test, make and present your ideas through a ‘travelling’ Peep Show, a seemingly limitless online travelling viewing platform. Be prepared to make work and be able to spend some time between the two sessions developing and/or collaborating on creative work. You will be put into cross-disciplinary groups for breakouts during the sessions. Keeping up Momentum is open to all OCA students - any course, any level.
The first session runs on Zoom from 10am to about 12.30 on Saturday November 27th and the second at 10am - 12.30 on Saturday December 11th.
To book a ticket please add your details to this registration sheet. You will need to be logged in to your OCA account to edit the sheet. The Zoom log-in details will be sent to you a few days before the event.
Keeping up Momentum is a student-led initiative to inspire, motivate and connect OCA students.
