HYDRO Artists in Residence – February 2017
We’re delighted to welcome Leona Jones and Penny Hallas as HYDRO artists in residence. Both explore themes of energy, industry and the environment in their artworks: they find the mini hydro sites, processes and ethos hugely exciting and are intrigued by the challenge of how to represent this in their artwork given that hydro electric systems are by their very nature largely hidden from view.
The initial research phase of their work will be to follow installation at the Blaen Dyar site and gather material related to hydro technology and the landscape in which it is situated. This will include sound recordings, film, photography, mapping and drawing, which they hope to develop into finished artworks at a later stage.
