For artist Di Mainstone, the magic starts with movement.
Di creates sculptures, devices and installations inspired by the movements of the human body. Many of these transform movement into sound, and are inspired by developments in technology. Her projects include a clip-on device that allows people to “play” suspension bridges like a giant harp, and a “hydrocordion” which creates soundscapes by playing with air and water.
Di is an artist in residence at Queen Mary University, and has also worked with The National Portrait Gallery, The V&A and The Barbican.
As a commissioned artist for Thinking Digital Arts, she will also be creating a film that will draw out the unique characteristics of TDC’s long-time “home”: The Sage Gateshead.
