A relaxed viewing Of Sea & Stone - a 10-minute projection lightshow, set to music and presented on the side of Rufus Castle
Of Sea & Stone is a 10-minute projection lightshow, set to music and presented on the side of Rufus Castle and part of the cliffs below
Created by Dan Shorten and Guildhall Live Events, the work is inspired by community-led research for The History, Myths and Legends of Church Ope Cove Project – a b-side and Portland Museum partnership.
The work uses light, colour and figurative images to transform the surface of the castle and the cliff creating bold patterns and imagery. Inspired by the way the castle seems to appear as if it has been pulled up out of the rock, Of Sea & Stone repeatedly uses the reshaping of rock and stone, as abstract building blocks that morph into an evolving sequence of shapes and images. These images, like the Portland coastline, are sculpted by water. The resulting abstract collage of symbols and motifs attempt to represent the rugged and dramatic coastline whilst acknowledging the elemental nature of the landscape and its reforming over time.
