THE ART OF AWARENESS
DJ | ARTWORKS brings to you the work of award-winning artist Danielle Jacques.
Danielle uses print, film, audiovisual installation, and workshops to explore altered states of consciousness. Through synthesising Eastern philosophy and Western science she creates relaxing, mindful experiences for audiences to nurture a presence of mind, contemplating perception, reality and illusion.
Danielle graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2020 with a Distinction in MA Visual Arts, Fine Art Digital. Danielle has exhibited at galleries such as the Saatchi Gallery and received the Mercers' Arts Award in 2020.
For an overview of her current practice please watch the video at the bottom of the page.
Danielle explores altered states of consciousness through photography, video, and audio-visual installation. She engages with the properties of ink, water, and light – dispersing, diffusing, diffracting, and embracing the unexpected – to develop a practice she describes as “meditation-in-action”.
Through photography and film, she solidifies these visual meditations, so that she may elongate, interpret, and share her experiences. Informed by psychology and perception theory she is interested in the impacts of sensory stimulation upon how we perceive our inner and outer worlds. Photos and videos are pushed through multiple modes of transformation, using both analogue and digital processes – layering, reflecting, stretching, scaling, and looping – each process bringing new depths to her illusions which surprise and delight.
