Each thing I do I rush through so I can do something else

 Each thing I do I rush through so I can do something else, three channel video with audio, steel, rope, books, scripts for a public action, t-shirt, 2014.


Addressing the place of art in the social space of conversation, and the influence of conversation and rumour in art, this work focuses on metaphors of travelling, movement, consistent fluctuations, scripting, and ideas taking new form as they shift between people. The art object is a vessel for the transferal of ideas and questions between people. This project supplies a platform for discussion, which is focused on the influence of conversation itself in art. Performance, collaboration, suggested actions, and scripted behaviours react to each other like a musical score – one action prompts another.
