In this week's Playlist we present a selection of videos by our members that have a theme of 'colour'. These have been guest-selected by Claire Rongying Duan who's currently undertaking a Postgraduate Work Placement at Axisweb.

Gillian Hobson, Shaping Light No.4, 2018

Dual projection, Wood, Glass, Mirror
Dimensions: 200cm h x 4.5cm w
Duration: Variable

Shaping Light No. 4 is developed from a series of evolving iterations addressing the interplay between glass and digital technologies to explore and express the gestural potentials of encounter. Influenced by psychogeographic and psychoanalytic perspectives the work examines how the interplay of static glass planes and digital light projections animate spatial and psychological experience, disrupting associations between the material and the immaterial, the inner and outer worlds of the viewer.

Laura Cooper, Color Poem [For Hyesou's Herd], 2015

Color Poem [For Hyesou's Herd]
HD Video on Flat Screen TV & Felt Sculpture | (4mins) 2015

This Color Poem is part of a larger project and installation made up of charts, video and sculpture called Nomadic Glow. Nomadic Glow attempts to record—in a deliberately limited, schematic fashion—the elaborate naming system that Mongolian nomadic herdsman use to identify each individual horse in their herd, which is based on their nuanced perception of horse coat colors. When visiting the Mongolian Steppe, I brought with me a range of industrial paint color chips and invited Hyesou—a local nomadic herdsman—to match the horses in his herd through this limited selection of paint colors. The poem is the result of his selections. The voice in the video has been auto-tuned and restricted to a color scale where color tone corresponds to musical tone.
