Simon Limbrick realised another performance of our collaboration surfaces yesterday at the Sainsbury’s Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures in Norwich as part of their exhibition Washi: The Art of Japanese Paper. The performance was streamed live again, so I managed to see Simon gradually reducing the materials to a pile of scraps…

I’m back in the room with Simon now, having had a little sleep. I’ve been looking at the way some of the work he’s done has developed. There’s a sheet hanging at the back of the room with a load of squares drawn on it. When I left last night at about 2am, it only…

Simon Limbrick is currently performing his realisation of surfaces at hcmf. I’ve been popping in and out of the space today, and it’s been interesting to see what has changed on returning.

There are some pictures of the…

coffee cup surface

Richard Glover pointed me towards this item, which seems like a likely possibility for realising various distinct spatial and temporal locations. Çurface is an industrial surface made from compressed coffee and melted coffee cups, although you’d still need a coffee cup to realise the piece. In the meantime, have a look at Johnny Chang’s video…

Simon Limbrick visited me in Bath last week to continue our work for the piece we’re making for hcmf this November. It uses surfaces as the sound sources, activated by other surfaces, objects, or manipulation. We’re experimenting with materials at the moment, having sourced a variety of papers. Simon will be performing the piece for…
