Cam­era Obscura finalé in the base­ment of the school. We watched the play­ground upside down.

Upside-down and Backwards resulted in a series of inversions, reflections and refractions in between our ideas of nature and culture. During the final two weeks of school, artists Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed explored artists’ investigations in nature and landscape, through several field trips. The classes created “endless paintings” on the banks of the Don River, with colour bars inspired by earlier Colour Research (particularly as remembered by the Morris/Trasov Archive).  We hiked with Elinor Whidden’s Rearview Walking Sticks, and created landscape reflection portraits, inspired by Iain Baxter&.  Juice boxes were made as props and ‘documents’ from each field trip. The grand finale featured schoolyard performances for the ‘pinhole’ of a camera obscura in the school basement.
