View of Jon Lockart's "The Boundless Museum" installation at Reading Museum

The Boundless Museum

I was asked by artist, Jon Lockhart to create a phone film to document his amazing installation “The Boundless Museum” which has been touring this year.

I took a trip up to Reading Museum to see the show and shoot my material on the iPhone. The huge, complex installation of resonant objects seemed to be impossible to capture in a short amount of time, but I decided to take a different approach and made use of the macro lens on the Olloclip set to create a kind of inner world that focussed on small details.

The installation also has some nice signature sounds from a few motion triggered pieces that sound a sustained keyboard chord and electronic clock tick sounds. There’s also a repeated snippet of what sounds like Nat King Cole on my recordings, though I couldn’t identify where it originated.

I’ve used a few of these sounds, and heavily used the ticking of clocks from the installation to capture the audio world.

Electronic band, Paddox played at the exhibition opening event and I recorded them to provide the looping synth sounds in the film.
