I’m interested in doing a project where clay can be used to shape sound. The video shows how a clay pot is made.
I am pleased to preview ‘Dead Drops’ a new project which I started off as part of my ongoing EYEBEAM residency in NYC the last couple weeks. ‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and date. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is still in progress, to be continued here and in more cities. Full documentation, movie, map and ‘How to make your own dead drop’ manual coming soon! Stay tuned.

In the meanwhile drop some files here!
An extremely interesting piece of work which in turn is also a social experiment. Would be awesome to implement something similar like this in New Zealand.

This is my performance as part of Aural Terrains, a project exploring sound composition. The St Paul’s Street Gallery foyer was an excellent space for sound. It is a vault which rises seven floors.
I used a combination of tape loops, a video game and a fan synthesizer based on light. The prepared tape loops were taken from recordings from old records and from our studio environment.
“1201 alarm” is from the Apollo 11 moon landing and describes a computer error that occurred as the space ship began it’s landing procedure. “The electronic digital computer” is Wernher von Braun describing the importance of the computer in making the moon landing possible. “I just couldn’t make it” was taken from a performance of Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.
The practical project for our Math and Art paper for the BCT.
I asked members of the public to help me draw chalk lines on the pavements, based on two simple rules.
- The lines must close in a loop
- The lines may not cross
I began by using elements of the city landscape such as post boxes and bollards as the basis for construction.
Thanks to Chris Clifton for taking the video footage.
