Transporting Skies - New Work by Susan Collins

Has been made possible with the kind help and support of the following organisations and individuals:

Emily Ash, who invited me to do the project and has been endlessly enthusiastic and supportive throughout

The installation team at Newlyn and Site, led by Adrian Fogarty, Blair Todd (Newlyn), and Matt Jarvis (Site Gallery) who were all wonderful,inventive, good humoured and fantastic to work with, and without whom there would not have been a show.

Simon Schofield for the programming that made the pixel piece possible (and Matt Jarvis for making it 'visible')

Steven Newell of Artfull Glass for the beautifully made glass bowl projection surfaces

Peter Ride for his thoughtful essay

Simon Bradshaw and the team at MITES for technical and projection advice

Tom Lomax for his smoke ring invention which in the event hasn't become part of this show, but I hope will be part of future work.

Tim Head for advice and support and pixelvision...

Jeanine Griffin and the team at Site Gallery for taking the project on and doing so much to help make it work

Liz Knowles and the team at Newlyn for making it happen

This exhibition was initiated by Newlyn Art Gallery, Penzance and made possible through funding from the National Touring Programme of the Arts Council of England with additional practical support from the Slade Centre for Electronic Media
