Reactor: Function VI

Images from Function VI

After a seven-year absence, Reactor's Function events returned last month with Function VI.

Function is a testing ground for experimental and collaborative ideas. A series of events, where Reactor act as curatorial body, bringing together a number of artists to develop objects, installations and performances; creating an all-encompassing ‘total experience’ that consumes its participants (both artists and audience) and challenges them to take an active role in how the event unfolds, where choices and behavior decide the shape of the experience.

Prising open the doors of a disused and dilapidated building, Reactor invited participants to enter, navigate its confined space, and help bring Function back to life.

On Saturday 20th of October, as the evening gloom settled over Nottingham, I was on hand to document. Here are some of my images from the event:

Function VI featured the work of: AAS, Bruce Asbestos, AuntyNazi, Amelia Beavis-Harrison, Robin Close, Phillip Henderson, Robert Holcombe, Mark McGowan, Simon Raven, Tether… with a hint of Reactor.

Further events up to Function X are in the works.

The Green Man & Regular Fellows: Images and Reviews

Sunday Lunch at The Green Man

Here are some of the photographs that I took at Reactor's The Green Man & Regular Fellows. The event took place in Nottingham across Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings of the last weekend in September. In honour of traditional pub opening hours The Green Man also had a Sunday lunchtime opening, where I took these photographs, featuring a pub quiz with a Harvest Festival hamper prize.

I only briefly stopped by the The Green Man on Friday night, before heading off again for a friend's birthday meal. But I was there all night Saturday (including the lock-in), for Sunday lunch, and then back that evening for last orders.

jonathanwaringphotography.co.uk

My photography portfolio website jonathanwaringphotography.co.uk now has its own hosting. Prior to this it lived in a sub-directory here at jonathanwaring.net. This caused various problems with the way it appeared in Google (and other) search listings, prompting the move.

The site documents some of the professional photography work I have done for clients. I initially worked documenting art gallery shows and live art events, before broadening my scope to produce images for a wider range of clients.

Please take a look if you have the time.
