Using collage, digital projections and mixed media installations the artists will produce work responding either to the week immediately preceding the exhibition, or to that week's events historically. Inevitably, the time constraints on the artists and the pressure this puts them under will lead to an urgency, rawness and immediacy reflected in each of the three weekend shows.
Our contribution to the show was:Last Transmission
Week 1: On the hour every hour
Digital and analogue radios are both tuned to radio 4. The signals between the two radios suffer a 2 second delay due to the processing time of the digital radio. On the hour every hour the radio 4 pips echo out of synch.
Week 2: Greenwich meantime
A cctv camera and monitor were added to the first weeks setup. The live cctv image showing the viewer approaching the space was delayed by the same amount as the radios (2 seconds)
Week 3: This Is The Week That Was
Added to this setup for week three we introduced a video switcher playing back the previous weeks recording plus the time delayed live cctv image just to add to the confusion.
Below is a video clip of the cctv output from week 3
