Title:
Twenty six (drawings and falling things)
Authors:
Wood, John; Harrison, Paul
Abstract:
“Twenty six (drawings and falling things)”, is a multi-channel Video installation of dynamic material actions performed by the collaborating artists. The work investigates the relationship between the human figure and architecture, developed through short form video (20 seconds – 3 minutes), with particular emphasis on actions being formulated and resolved within a given duration. The 26 sections act as individual works, but also as a whole, allowing the viewer to read a linear development within each work or to make links between the individual sections. Each work holds an internal logic, action related to duration. Within this world (architectural space, the gallery space, the business office, the laboratory) action occurs, creating a tension between the environment and its inhabitant, a sense of play is revealed. Sources of the work are intentionally mixed – art history, slapstick humour, Open University instruction, drawing, science.
