Every lighthouse has three sectors – the white sector, which is the safe course to navigate, and the green and red sectors where the course leads into dangerous waters. When you move away from the white sector you move into an uncharted zone.
Moving into red sector is about changing course, moving into the unknown. Once you move into that sector you are alone and cut off from the ordinary routine of life. In our Red sector deadline art project, we lived and breathed the the harsh environment around Lille Presteskjær lighthouse. This is what we found.
Red sector is our 24th SX-70 Europe deadline art project at mentalpropell.com Deadline art is an art movement where the artist explores the possibility of creating art under the working conditions of a press photographer. This entails arriving at an unknown place with only a vague brief (or mantra as we like to put it), having a very brief (and defined) time to produce a finished work. No excuses: the work has to be excellent. Swipe away daily mundane thinking and get down to serious play. At mentalpropell we are a group of practitioners that love both the process and the result of the deadline art approach.
The team that created Red Sector are Anki Gneib, Annica Thomsson, Eirik V Johnsen and Kristian Pohl.
