Planning for 2018

Periscope are launching into 2018 with some very exciting projects! First up in May is a fantastic event at the Museum in the Park in Stroud; Periscope will be running an immersive event which supports a retrospective exhibition of Astrid and John Furnival. We’ll be focusing on John’s work with text and concrete poetry but also referencing Astrid’s protest work. We’re in the early planning stages of ‘The Wordsmith’s Studio’ and will be giving more information as things progress and ferment over the coming months!

The Animators Studio

This was our third Big Draw event at The Museum In The Park one year on from The Dream of the Plant Collector. This time our studio was the domain of an inventor who is captivated by movement and the moving image. We referenced early Victorian attempts at animation and the room contained many examples of the inventor’s own experiments fashioned from household objects: coat-hangers, a cake-stand, a lampshade, clock mechanisms and a rotary washing line. Participants could play with many different ways of making drawings move and drawing with movement and also assist in the construction of a large rotary drawing machine. The event took place over one weekend in October 2017.
