In 2008, Isabella exhibited three pieces at the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne in a show entitled ‘Shooting The Light Fantastic’. These three pieces can broadly be described as viewing machines which also operate as war-making devices.
The Delayed Rays of A Star is a 2x3m sculpture in glass, steel and wood. The piece also comprises a 1m-diameter kiln-formed glass lens not currently on show.
Shooting The Light Fantastic is an installation using home-made video transmitters and ballistics to capture images. This work has been supported by Creative Partnerships Northumberland and Arts Council England through the Northumberland Rising project.
You Never See Me From The Place At Which I See You has been developed with Daniel Jackson and Dr Patrick Olivier of the School of Computing Science, Newcastle University at Culture Lab, Newcastle. The work consists of three parts- a viewing structure, a viewing object (a stop-frame animation) and a viewing regime (iWitness software developed by Dan Jackson).
