A Decade on: Our Play

2022 is a 10 year anniversary of my 4 Generations of Women project, which began one summer in South Bohemia. The whole project found its expression quite inconspicuously, through observation of the dynamic within the household, which suddenly and through various events, became occupied by women only. At the time I was preparing for an... Continue Reading →

Trespassing Wormwood

Steve and I have returned to our haunts after almost a year. It has been an interesting experience for me: having become something of an outsider in this previously local place, I have a feeling my perspective is shifting. It's hard to say what exactly it means in terms of my attention. But Wormwood has... Continue Reading →

4 Generations Women: December 2021

She has been washed out elsewhere, into a world I am trying to understand, for reasons I am also trying to understand. But before that, briefly, she appeared... Continue Reading →

Pirates of Worm Wood

Sunday 8th December 2019. The last time Steve and I meet before 2020 arrives. Today we have a business to do. No longer just observers, we want to leave a mark. Not out of sentimentality, but because we want to experience small taste of this violence to come, to understand in our own bodies what... Continue Reading →

Tangible Territory: being animated

In my last post I discussed some of the processes behind the concept of Tangible Territory within Blue Hour immersive installation, part of 36Q within Prague Quadrennial 2019. This next post reflects on what happened once Tangible Territory came to life, animated by human interactions. From the beginning, TT approach has been about openness, process... Continue Reading →
