Luke Dunwoodie successfully completed a BA(Hons) in Film at Falmouth University in 2013. Despite studying on a conventional film course, Luke has used this as a starting point to now consider films that do not sit within the traditional cinema space. Questioning the way in which film is watched, his work has been influenced and inspired by artists working in video installation within the gallery setting. Luke’s theory and practical work focuses on the viewer’s physical relationship to the space in which they watch film. He completed his dissertation, entitled ‘The Corporeity of The Viewer in Proscenium and Installation Arts’, on the topic of the spaces of the cinema and the gallery, analysing theories of phenomenology and specific artist’s to explore the space of an installation and how it effects the viewer’s perception. These interests mirror in his practical work, and Luke creates installations that draw from these theories and examples. His final year practical project was a sole venture in which he designed and built The Screenbox, a self-contained pod-like structure that surrounds the viewer, creating a 360° experience. The installation aims to create an alternative way of viewing film that attacks the passive audience and challenges the convention of cinema through attempting to make the viewer aware of the act of watching.
