On this evening the audience will experience the latest technology with what Martha Fiennes describes as ‘film paintings’ and view her first work, Nativity, which is part of the ground-breaking SLOimage media. This will be a highly immersive new visual experience, which has the potential to shift the viewer’s mood to offer a positive transformative effect to the viewer in real time.

This ‘film-painting’ is self-generating, 'dynamic' and never ending. It is impossible to predict what 'may happen next' as this is un-knowable. There is no fixed requirement of time asked of the viewer and Martha considers that whatever the 'painting' reveals at the time of viewing, is synchronistic and appropriate for that viewing at that time.

Martha will explain how the potent nature of 'archetype' in visual form constitutes an aspect of involuntary memory known already to the soul and that communication at this level can be immediate and profound. Martha believes that forms of imagery that echo engagement with cosmic intelligence have been experienced and celebrated by previous civilisations; she is interested in the creation of immersive imagery that may trigger associations with timelessness and to universal intelligent energy, which we are all able to access for our well-being.


About the speaker, Martha Fiennes

Martha Fiennes is an award-winning filmmaker, director, writer and now artist. Her first feature, Onegin, earned widespread critical acclaim, awards and a BAFTA nomination.

Her second feature, Chromophobia, written by Martha, was the closing night film of the 58th edition of the Cannes Film Festival. Since 2011 Martha has been using a pioneering form of generative computer technologies to create large-scale 'filmworks' which extend the possibilities of film as a medium and art as an experience; the technological innovations used in creating her projects are ground-breaking.

The first in the series of works that Martha will be developing over the coming years has already been created. 'Nativity' is a spellbinding film with continuously generative elements: audiences will never view exactly the same image twice. It has been showcased at the V&A, the National Gallery in London, at Sotheby’s – in two shows - and been exhibited in Paris at the Arts Arena. Martha's work sits in an evolving space between film, art, technology and conscious wellbeing.
