in a darkened room
In a Darkened Room was first created for the Art 75 exhibition at the Lido in Penzance. Here’s what the curators thought:
"My four year old son and I were transfixed by the installation. After the initial exploration of the ‘game’ of the piece for the most part we just watched the reactions of other people experiencing the installation and slowly found ourselves interacting with the work and them. As an arts funder I was very pleased that FEAST could be associated in a small way with work like this."
JACK MORRISON – FEAST PROJECT MANAGER
“The interactive video piece by Roger Thorp was unexpected and engaging. To walk out of the bright sunlight around Jubilee Pool and come face to face with yourself in the cool dreamlike world of “In a Darkened Room”, as though you too were swimming underwater, was a memorable experience.”
ROSE BARNECUT – HEAD OF CREATIVE SERVICES – CORNWALL COUNCIL
“IN A DARKENED ROOM was a real highlight of the ART 75 show at the Lido in Penzance. People of all ages enjoyed discovering and interacting with the work which was also admired by established artists. I look forward to seeing more in the future.”
JESSE LEROY SMITH – ART 75 PROJECT MANAGER
