Concept

The interpretations encounter political statements or disperse cultural observations; correspondence that is not immediate but perhaps depends on the contingencies of travel. Subversive systems of posting and collecting dialogue create the emergence of new narratives that are shared and reacted upon through hybrid texts, images and temporary ownership. Show cased as a touring exhibition at Broadwalk Arts, Bristol then at The Willesden Gallery, London, the works continue to explore language, visual interchange and systematic dialogues.

Still from Video





















An LCD Screen is housed in a small bottle. The green and red lights on the harbour wall flash in a distinct series of dots and dashes. A message appears to be being communicated in morse code. In a world of increasingly electronic exchange our communication and understanding are increasingly reliant on systems of 'reading' and translating data. A simple message of dots and dashes is encoded within a video signal. An understanding of the message requires not only an understanding of morse but also a means to translate the video signal and a means to power the device to read the signal.
