Artists James McColl and Jessica Wright present Collide-O-Vision: Observation of Beautiful Forms.
The observation of beautiful forms is the literal translation of the Ancient Greek word kaleidoscope. We’d like to think of this not only as a visual observation but audio observation too.
As tourists, wanderers and strays, we appreciate places in very different ways to our hometowns. We take far more of an interest in a place’s heritage and quirks when we are unfamiliar with them. Collide-O-Vision is a look at the city of Roath through the eyes of outsiders, in a conscious effort to showcase the beauty of everyday surroundings. Local landscape and culture, is made abstract using a process much like that of a kaleidoscope, Collide-O-Vision.
