Paul Gittins

Paul Gittins is a multi media artist working with light and sound.

He has developed a unique optical system that uses handmade paper pixels to divide light into pattern. Translucent screens containing a matrix of paper cells are used to create a new form of shadow theatre.

The Electric Shadow House has been installed at outdoor festivals, Glastonbury, Big Chill etc. and in galleries and theatres. Dancers and musicians create a mesmerising animation in real time. The screens can also be activated by television, sunlight and video projection.

Continuing his work with analogue technology he has recently developed an automatic orchestra using oak apples powered by clock motors.
