There is a joy that exists within Lorna’s Socially Engaged Creative Practice visualised here in her Polysemantic Ribbons Installation created in April 2020. Lorna’s practice encourages others to participate and experience their own creative identities.
This short film project utilises the location of an elevator as the protagonist. It explores ways in which the environment acts upon the characters inside the elevator and unpacks the symbolism of vertical motion in relation to themes of class, security and morality
In this 360-film piece, element by element, the house and its surroundings are masked entirely by the SMPTE colour bars, commonly used as an “off the air” symbol. This device is used to transform a natural environment into a man-made one.
Created during the creative digital media module ‘Experimental Practice’, this piece was used to identify my creative process and how and what catalyses the imagination. The mystery of the scene poses questions to the viewer, allowing further developments in the story.
The Buildings are Alive
This is a still from an animation that explores the theme of re-birth, and the transition from a natural world to an artificial one. These worlds represent a dichotomy of what is humanly recognisable and what is inhumanly alien.
Productive and Longing
During the “Experimental Practice” module, I explored how my emotions and art connect with a ‘draw first, think later’ approach, titling each piece with a single word to reflect on my feelings during the day.
In contrast to the previous image, this piece explores brighter and lighter feelings with matching colours, a floating, flying feeling. One could say it is magical.
Swimming in colours – Ukrainian Kobzar
Closely linked to my Ukrainian cultural roots and childhood memories. The image depicts a traditional bandura player with the colours of the Ukrainian flag, combining Abstract Expressionism and digital media.
Swimming in colours – Fish 1,2
The idea came about by chance from a visit to a Sea Life Centre, where my imagination was captured by the colourful display of luminous fish. The project combines Abstract Expressionism and experiments with colour using Creative Cloud.
A personal exploration of the impact my multi-cultural upbringing had on my sense of belonging. Through experimental film NOMAD explores the idea that one’s identity is waiting to be filled by experiences and never stops evolving.
An experimental narrative moving image piece that explores the concept of assimilation versus acculturation. It addresses immigrating at a young age and not losing one’s cultural markers, taking place at the intersection where my culture, religion, ethnic origin and nationality meet.
I had been consistently impressed with the staff and facilities at Worcester University, and the unique combination of a one-year Masters course with wide flexibility offered within the modules made the Creative Digital Media MA the ideal course for me.”
