Open Canvas | The Media Workshop

  • Torre Abbey Museum The Kings Drive Torquay, TQ2 5JE United Kingdom (map)

Projection-mapping strips away the reality of the Torre Abbey’s South Facade, taking us into a dreamland from which digital animations grow, taking us from the real world into imagined pasts, presents and futures. The Abbey becomes a canvas for mass collaboration and a celebration of people and place.

We invite you to watch, but also contribute to a deep dive into the imagination of Torquay. Rather than being visitors to the galleries within the abbey walls, visitors are asked creatively re-imagine the walls themselves, using the Abbey as a canvas for your own artistic expression.

A fun exploration of what art is from the simplest scribble to a CGI animation, using digital technology to provide a glimpse into the nature of exhibition and reception.

This people-centered project will be providing the ‘map’ of Torre Abbey to individuals, schools and groups, encouraging you to leave your mark on this significant building – contributing through digital design, video, or analogue image-making with paper, paint or pen.

Make sure to like our facebook page and sign up to our enewsletter (below). Over the coming days, we’ll be calling for contributions, with maps, guidance and inspiration to help you along.

Suitable for all.
