Abstract:
“Notebook” is presented as either a single or six channel video installation consisting of numerous manipulations of everyday objects by the collaborating artists. The work, consisting of 101 short sections, shot within a single, simple set (which can be read as an office space, laboratory, domestic kitchen etc) seeks to play with the ‘everyday’. Where architectural form often dictates physical activity the action depicted alters the reading of the physical space. Each action takes an everyday object and alters its function, slightly. The tabletop on which the actions occur becomes everything from an office desk to a landscape. It seeks to playfully look at how everyday objects can be re-invented and therefore re-examined. And how within sterile environments (the office, the factory, the gallery) elements of play exist.
