To accompany the on-site exhibition An echo imprinted at Wysing Arts Centre 18 October-5 December 2021, Robert Foster-Jones has created an online space on Mozilla Hubs to encounter 3D renderings of some of the objects included in the show, accompanied by the soundscape of the installation. Captured using photogrammetry software, and floating in an ethereal sky dome, Foster-Jones intends for these representations to act as ‘digital ghosts’ for the physical objects themselves. Suspending in a seemingly infinite horizon, and accessible across time and space, the 3D renders transcend the tangible physicality of the original sculptural works and offer a remote online space for gathering and contemplation.

An echo imprinted (18 October-5 December 2021) is a new solo exhibition from artist Robert Foster-Jones as part of the Test Space programme which provides a public platform for Wysing's studio artists to test out new ideas and directions. The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Brown.

Bringing together work in ceramics and sound, with results from experiments in photogrammetry software, An echo imprinted reflects on the cave as a point of origin, both culturally and spiritually.

The installation draws upon Foster-Jones’ recent experiences of becoming a father himself and the loss of his own father, to contemplate how we remember, commemorate, and how fleeting memories can leave an indelible mark, or become abstracted in time.
