Talk and insight into material / rearranged / to / be
Location: Study Centre

A talk with artists involved in the project discussing the ideas behind the multidisciplinary performance installation material / rearranged / to / be, and the collaborative creative process used to make it.

Workshop: material/ rearranged / to / be
Location: Gallery 5 (Barbra Brown)

Practical activities exploring the ideas within performance installation material / rearranged / to / be.

Film installation: The Running Tongue
11am-4pm (looped)
Location: Gallery 3

A film installation created by Siobhan Davies and David Hinton. Defying the usual conventions of cinematic form, the film is edited live in real time by a custom-programmed computer which makes its own decisions about how to order the narrative. This means that the work can run forever and never quite play the same way twice. The changing order of events and different juxtapositions of sound and picture continuously offer up new ways to read the images and stories.
