Fascinated by humanity’s obsession with trying to capture, appropriate and preserve the elusive qualities of beauty and freedom, the Jam Jar Fairies series combines the tangibility of a domestic jam jar with the ephemeral illusion of projection. Originally commissioned and developed for the Royal Shakespeare Company as an installation in which 8 fairies create a polyphonic composition by knocking on the glass, the Jam Jar Fairies have now become stand alone video sculptures. Each jar features a holographic projection of Kristin that has been filmed and captured by Davy & Kristin McGuire.
