Music & Light Symbiosis no. 3 | APPLIED PURE at the Mathematical Institute

A six minute documentary film made by Ewan Golder, about the immersive music, water and light event APPLIED PURE, held in the lecture theatre L2 of the Andrew Wiles Building, the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford on 18th November 2019.

Featuring Medea Bindewald playing JS Bach’s ‘Allemanda from Partita VI in E Minor BWV 830’ on the harpsichord and Joseph Black sculpting the water and making patterns during the performance.

The project was curated and created by Katharine Beaugié in response to being invited to exhibit at the Mathematical Institute, by the MI arts consultant, mathematics lecturer and subsequent co-curator Balázs Szendrői.

The artworks featured are photograms (photographic shadows of water and objects) digitised and enlarged, and printed and face mounted with perspex. The works were made by Katharine Beaugié and were described by Martin Kemp, the leading authority and art writer on Leonardo Da Vinci, as “Delicious”.
