Turn your drawings into music
Sat 18 June 11am – 3pm
Free and all ages welcome
SPACE Ilford

Have you ever wondered what a drawing of a frog, or a rainbow might sound like? Join artist Kristina Pulejkova for a drop-in workshop exploring animal calls and making sounds from your own drawings. 

During the workshop, we will be using a free mobile phone app to turn your drawings into music, and to identify animals from their calls. You will be given the role of an explorer and sent in search of animal sounds, which will be hidden around the workshop space. To gather all the sounds you will be given a sound diary, which you can decorate on the day using colour pens and collage. At the end of the workshop, you will have your own sound drawing and diary to take home. 

Note: You will need to download a free app on your phone for this workshop, wifi will be provided by SPACE

Kristina Pulejkova is SPACE’s Digital Producer and a visual artist based in London, UK. Her inter-disciplinary practice is informed by science and technology. Kristina’s work explores how the use of technology might lead to greater forms of sustainability in human-nature relationships. Working across moving image, sound and installation, she aims to build subjective narratives based on scientific data and principles. In her work, she tends to imagine voices from creatures, objects and even atoms in order to inhabit non-human perspectives. Through use of immersive technology, her works often deal with environmental issues, telling personal stories that place audiences at the centre of the scene, allowing for a protagonist’s perspective and a different way of seeing.

Kristina holds a Magisterium Degree (BA + MA) in Painting and Animation from the University for Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria (2012) and an MA Degree in Art and Science from Central Saint Martins, London, UK (2014). She is the recipient of the inaugural FLAMIN Fellowship by Film London (2017). Kristina’s works have been exhibited/screened at the National Gallery, Skopje, MK; MoCA, Skopje MK; The Science Museum, London, UK; MAN Museum, Sardinia, IT; The V&A, London, UK; MAK, Vienna, AT; Project Space Kunsthalle, Vienna, AT; Het Glaspaviljoen, Eindhoven, NL; Upstream Gallery, Amsterdam, NL; Art COP21 Paris, FR; Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Art Licks Festival, London UK; Lewisham Art House, London, UK; and Royal College of Arts, London, UK amongst others.
