Tara Rutledge United Kingdom
A photographer, digital manager and visual artist, I have a wide range of artistic influences and love to experiment with different media including projection, photography, prose, soundscapes and lighting. I live in the West Midlands and my work usually centres around community engagement.
I love to collaborate and my most recent exhibition involved 11 other artists creating work exploring the ongoing rebirth and regeneration of my home town, using projection as the main medium . Following on from Project Coventry's premiere, I hope to tour a selection of the artworks around Coventry, taking projections to parks, libraries, shops, railway stations and walkways where anyone can access them. In February I start a month long residency at CLASS ROOM's 'Künstlerwerkstatt Artsist's Workshop Programme' exploring AR and how to incorporate taste, smell, touch and surround sound into my installation work.
