The Project

Studio 360° is an online video archive profiling six Sackville, New Brunswick artists in their studios. The featured artists work in diverse media from embroidery to animation and painting to ceramics. They also represent careers that range from emerging and established.

 

At the heart of the project are videotaped interviews with artists that reveal the working context for each artist’s practice as well as their own reflections on their studios as constructed spaces for the creation of art.

The project includes interactive 360˚ panoramic photographs of each studio,  allowing visitors to zoom-in and discover in remarkable detail everything from painting pallets and book collections to works in progress and favourite music CDs.

 

As the title suggests, Studio 360˚ provides a "full view" of the artist's practice—as a virtual, up-close look into the private space of the artist's studio, and as a means to more fully understand an artist's final production.

Studio 360° is produced by the Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University in partnership with Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre and funded by a grant from the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation.

 

The interviews took place in the summer of 2012.
