Space. London 2003-06
The ideas from the original wall work progressed beyond making animations ( Hospitalised) and into reaseraching Sensory Installations ( Infra-Thin). At the begining of the project I tried to explain to my Professor/ Research Supervisor that it was about creating 'new spaces', that became active when they were validated by others through their recognition, and usage. To illustrate the point I went back to wall work. I used numerical stickers, and coloured dots to mark out a large boundary circular space in South Kensington including Exhibition Road and Hyde Park. I showed her the route, she thought I was insane. Less that a week later I asked her to look again, and she saw able to see how others were validating the space, numerous stickers and other wall works were appearing long the boundary space that I had marked out.
I played with this concept of the recognition of new spaces though left traces for a while: (i) putting up large blank canvases and asking for contributions, (ii) walking into a social space armed with a laptop and a projector,, to start addressing the room via a blank word document. Once one person had written something to someone else in the room the communication channel snowballed, it was hard to get them to stop at last orders. (iii) Posters requesting people to deposit their chewed gum etc...
It also transformed into a project/ methodology called LIVE ANIMATION, for making live improvisational works from scratch.
