Hexham Weatherline

Jim Lloyd

This work uses the principle of an aeolian harp which was constructed for this project on a hill overlooking the town of Hexham. Sounds are generated when wind and rain cause wires to vibrate, varying with wind speed and direction; these vibrations are picked up with contact microphones.

The methodology could be reminiscent of scientific instruments collecting data to be used for prediction and control.  However, in this work, one can contemplate the immediate sensory experience as an ongoing complex interaction that does not need to be analysed.  An experience that can be just in the present, with sounds and images hovering between mystical abstraction and familiar reality. It is recommended to relax and listen with headphones.

Jim Lloyd’s art practice uses a variety of media including, photography, video, and sound to investigates human relationship with the natural world and the gap between our rational understanding and our direct sensory experience. He initially trained as a medical physicist, but is now pursuing an artistic career, graduating in 2017 from Newcastle University with a master’s degree in Fine Art (MFA, distinction).

Jim lives and works in Hexham.
