Metamorph
Film Projection

Award-winning photographer and film-maker Boo Beaumont premieres this exquisite projection of plants and flowers created by using X-ray and CT technology. These delicate images shift and melt into one another as they are projected onto North Road Methodist Church. This thought-provoking and beautiful piece draws the viewer in to question how things appear and what lies hidden beneath.

The specially-composed soundtrack by Orlando Kimber harmonises with the images and adds a further dimension for the viewer as they watch the flowers evolve.
