Simon Whitehead (Wales) & Barnaby Oliver (Australia)


PINGS springs directly from the geographical distance between two collaborators.

Working directly from their locales they will explore the physical space between them through rivers and air and a range of other terrains with their own qualities – communication links through the web, phone networks, postal, and the less tangible links of memory and synchronicity.

The artists will begin an exchange of performance and materials through these various channels as a means of mapping these terrains. Over time this will create a continuous feedback system. As with any feedback system, artefacts (imperfections) are introduced that begin to give us information about the space it occupies – as a tree is bent to the wind or a pebble smoothed by the sea.
