Documentation of the first exhibition [my work]

Posted: 23/04/13

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that “ any closed system disorder, or entropy, always increases with time...” (Hawkins, Stephen 1988)

TSLoT is a play on the title of Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb where a malfunctioning communications device, the CRM 114 Discriminator, causes the crew of the B52 to start a nuclear holocaust.

Consisting of five events TSLoT is a multi-site project where four artists will take it in turn to appropriate, deconstruct, de-author, re-imagine, redistribute and ultimately reassemble the artwork of the participants. The project will de-code and re-code practices to form new interpretations and insights, stretching the artists and challenging their understanding of their own practice.

Participating Artists:
Samuel Cook, Ryan Curtis, Jean-Philippe Dordolo and Sophie Victoria Elliott.

This is the documentation of my work within the exhibition sapce at The Wig, Birmingham. It is currently being re-worked/ re-interpreted/ re-coded etc. by Ryan Curtis in his Plymouth Studio. The results will then be re-worked by Ryan Curtis in his London studio and exhibited until they make their way to my Yorkshire studio. The nerves give way for excited apprehension as I blindly and helplessly wait to see what these artists shall do to my original work whilst attempting to stay true to my intentionas yet combine their own and everyone elses.
