Rendered (In)visible was a four-day residency by artist Fiona Grady at Saturation Point Project Space. The aim of the project was to experiment with the spatial abilities of drawing, through the creation of visual collages containing elements of traditional and contemporary drawing practice, using old and new media.

The project explored the three-dimensional potential of drawing.  The artist created an ambient series of wall drawings that were illuminated by digital projections.  These appeared in the form of static and/or moving collages of light and colour that invited the viewer to acclimatise to his or her environment and consider the subtleties of the work.  Currently, Grady’s wall drawings are activated by daylight: each moment viewed is unique, as the shadows cast by the windows allow light to move across the surface of a wall, heightening at certain points in the day. This period of investigation allowed the artist to discover new ways of replicating and expanding on this visual effect. The artworks were composed from changing lines or blocks of colour that reflected elements of the wall drawings, layering over them, blurring what was physically and digitally present. The projections mimicked daylight, at times brightening and overpowering the drawings until they became invisible. At their core the artworks invited new dialogues with static shapes.

During the project the artist used social media, including Instagram and Twitter, to share the drawings as they evolved. This enabled the work to be viewed through different media and in different locations. It was an opportunity for the artist to re-vision her work in a new venue which provided her with a fresh starting point and new direction for her practice.
