Heaven to Earth' explores what is hidden from the human eye and ear. Working with scientists at Bangor University, Jessica used digital microscopes to capture images of the Castle stone, plants and insect life. Ant Dickinson's score is constructed from manipulated resonances and reverberations recorded in and around the Castle.
Projection onto the Castle
Jessica Lloyd Jones and Ant Dickinson, Heaven to Earth was both a site-specific installation and also a large-scale projection on the castle walls. Both pieces complimenting each other very well, each showing the same imagery, but on very different scales. This must have been very challenging when the original concept was derived from microscopic photographs of the castle walls. Ant's score was well rounded the work itself was very succinct, and possibly one of the most powerful pieces in the exhibition.

Lloyd-Jones' Heaven to Earth. Another artwork contemplating the very structure of the castle. By taking microscopic images of the very fabric of the building she offered us a very thought provoking and humbling view of the world. In the tower we saw the piece projected onto a 1 metre sized rear projection screen. We later saw the work magnified 100 times on the castle walls. The whole piece from its tiny slides through to the spectacular projections were sublime. Ants accompaning score was a triumph. The collaboration probably one of the most successful at the festival.
