Abstract: “66.86 m”, is a single channel video documentation of a ‘drawing contraption’ of the artists’ devising, in which ropes are pulled through a box in order to produce a three-dimensional object, in this instance a chair. This is the first work Harrison & Wood produced without a figure present within the frame, and shows the making of a three-dimensional drawing of a generic chair. The continuous take from a fixed camera, together with the jerky movements of the rope and pulleys (used to produce the drawing) re-enforces the distance between the mechanical work and current digital technologies. The work examines the relationship between what is present within the frame and what is excluded. A very direct relationship is formed in that it is evident that what is onscreen is being directly activated by what is off screen, contrary to most film making where this relationship is hidden. The work also examines the relationship between the three dimensional space in which the activity is taking place, the activity itself, and the video.
