IRIS & Me - Jon Pountney

Jon Pountney has been documenting the annual Iris Prize since its inception in 2006, as well as the short films made by winners of the prize.

Running for the duration of the 2016 Festival, this new exhibition - audio/visual and stills photography - offers a window on the world of film production as well as offering previously unseen behind-the-scenes coverage of the eight Iris Prize Productions to date.

We went along to view the exhibition and spoke with Jon about the project.

The exhibition at the Park Inn Hotel in Cardiff ends Sunday 16th October and AV screenings at nightly at 6.30pm

RELICS: Photospheres Exhibit

Since the summer of 2014 visual artist Matt Wright has been travelling across the country capturing 360° viewpoints of Wales’ unique and varied historical landscapes. From these high-resolution images, the artist has created a number of spherical photographic sculptures that are subsequently installed back at their exact point of capture within the environments they document.
