Output Arts

Output Arts is an art collective founded in 2009 making site-specific, interactive and participatory artworks and experiences.

Output Arts brings together traditional and modern artistic techniques to produce playful and poignant works that surprise and delight.

They work with a variety of physical and time-based material – sometimes researched from people or a place – combined with thoughtful and careful use of digital technology.

Past works have distilled the subtle movements of the wind and breeze, the experience of a passing storm and the subterranean movements of the earth itself, translating these massive natural phenomena into stunning animated light installations for intimate contemplation.

Output Arts is a partnership between artists Andy D'Cruz and Jonathan Hogg.

CRYSTAL GARDEN - is new work commissioned for Christmas at Dunham Massey 2020.

It is a truly magical experience, made up of clusters of glowing shards that illuminate the dark night. Perhaps newly frozen ice – fitting for a fantastical winter landscape – or maybe ancient crystals sprung up from an underground magical grotto, they sparkle and shimmer with colour, creating a breath-taking and enchanting display.

GLOW draws on the ancient traditions of the evergreen tree – celebrated in Winter as a promise of Spring – and the flickering light of candles that bring cheer to the long nights.

Reduced to their essential form, the simple geometric trees are rooted in heritage while celebrating the contemporary. The piece provides an intimate warming glow on cold dark nights, a symbol of hope through the winter season.
