The making of ‘Asklepios’ - Zachary Eastwood-Bloom

Filmed for RA Editions

Here is what’s been going on in my studio over the last few weeks. I’ve been making and edition of 12 Asklepios for the Royal Academy Editions. The Edition is cast in Jesmonite and will be launched at Art14 art fair in London, running from Thursday 27th February to Sunday 2nd March and will be again on show at The London Print Fair, Thursday 24th April to Sunday 27th April at the Royal Academy of Arts. The edition, follows in the footsteps of artists such as Tracy Emin and Grayson Perry, with the profits from the sale of Asklepios, going towards financially supporting current students in the Royal Academy Schools.The RA Editions initiative has published around 40 original works by Royal Academicians including Gary Hume, Chris Orr and Phillip King, as well as RA Schools’ graduates such as Pio Abad, Blue Firth and Ha Young Kim.

In Memory of Objects - Digital sound - Audio only from Zachary Eastwood-Bloom on Vimeo.

As part of Studio Manifold’s show ‘This is How to live’ at the National Trust house, 2 Willow Road, former home of Modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger, I created the work ‘In Memory of Objects’. This work was twofold, initially I digitally 3D scanned a shelf of object that Ernö Goldfinger had collected and, working with computer programmer Will Robinson, created a digital sound work generated directly from the three-dimensional surface of the scan. In parallel, I gave composer Catherine Cheung, a series of images of the shelf of objects and asked her to compose a short work based on what she saw in the images, which she did for string quartet. The digital work was played throughout the duration of the exhibition and the string quartet performed at a special event. This video is the audio only version of the digital sound work.

These works of mine, ‘In Translation 1 & 2’, 3D printed in black nylon, are now on show in ‘Hand & Machine’ at Ontario Crafts Council for the Toronto Design Festival

Sound for a Building

from Zachary Eastwood-Bloom on Vimeo.

For Studio Manifold’s residency at the Siobhan Davies Dance Studio, in Elephant & Castle, London, I worked with Film Maker Sapphire Goss and Composer Elwin Hendrijanto to explore architecture in sound. Sapphire and I filmed the textures, surfaces and geometries of the Siobhan Davies Building, the footage was then edited by Sapphire in response to some of my drawings that explore the layers of the building. The film was then passed on to Elwin, and he created a soundtrack to accompany the imagery he was watching. The resulting film explores the layers and personality of architectural character.

Phase is a high impact, high tech jewellery collection. The delicate sculptural structures create shimmering Moiré interference patterns as the wearer moves around. The pieces are 3D printed into nylon, hand dyed and assembled in the UK, with accents of Swarovski crystals. The result is a collection of beautifully crafted luxury pieces, thoroughly contemporary and wearable. www.lynnemaclachlan.co.uk
