Tineke De Meyer & Duncan Speakman Residency
So we were on this island. I could tell you how we got there, describe the flight and the water & how we had trained our mind & prepared our body for it....
what pretences we used to explain our massive loss of weight & our coming absence for a few hundred tide years….
From the 16th-21st September, Belgian artist Tineke De Meyer will be at the Pervasive Media Studio working on a new collaboration with resident Duncan Speakman. They are developing a new experience that blends two-dimensional maps with spatialised sound. The project is in very early stages and currently builds a science fiction narrative (drawing on films like Stalker and Annihilation) to ask questions about how we might move towards a different knowledge practice, away the from the limited and false dualism of borderlines Throughout the week they will be inviting people to test out the work at different stages. Then on Friday 20th September, they will present a work in progress piece beginning at 2pm during Open Studio Friday. If you’re interested in being invited to try it out during the week please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, OR, you can pop in on Friday afternoon to see what they’ve been up to.
