The Art of Contemplation – 50 Degrees North | Art Installation at the Spirituality Centre

HOUR, a film about contemplation by visual artist Tim Wainwright and composer Chris Letcher, premiered at St Mary Woolnoth on 23rd June as part of the City of London Festival. It will be shown here at the Centre Bookshop until the end of the festival on 24th August.

Using still photographic images, sound and music, Wainwright and Letcher explore the process of contemplation, and how it can be seen to unite and transcend the disparate cities, cultures and religions along the ’60 degrees north’ line of latitude, the theme of this year’s festival.

defining contemplation as a way of looking inward, that complements rational and irrational thought processes enabling us to make sense of our world and ourselves, the artists consider the relationship between the body and the mind, the conscious and unconscious, and ultimately between the visual and the sonic.
