See Living Worlds in 3D – Part II

Haunting images of Manchester Museum’s animal collections took centre stage at a recent art show.

In her display entitled Stereoscopic Adventures, artist Jenna Rouse unveiled a dramatic hanging canvas featuring prints of skeletons from the Bodies cabinet on the Living Worlds gallery.

Also included in Jenna’s selection of final pieces for the group exhibition, called Eks’Vee, was a wraparound print showing monochrome images from the Variety of Life case.

Writing about the project, Jenna notes: “A Stereoscopic Adventure depicts spaces of spectacle and wonder inhabiting the plane beyond between the living and the dead, from which uncanny apparitions appear and take hold.”

She adds: “Using silk and canvas to reconstruct the world acts as a reflection upon the reproducibility of the temporal spaces as fabrications of mechanical reproductions.”

Jenna took the original photographs in the museum back in spring using a 3D camera (See Living Worlds in 3D) and has since transformed them into these impressive artworks inspired by the natural world.

The pieces formed part of a postgraduate degree show by Nottingham Trent University students at the Surface Gallery and Jenna sent some shots of the setting up process so we also get a peek behind the scenes of an exhibition.

Congratulations to Jenna for her great work and thanks very much again for sharing her images.
