A Sick Logic
Research & Development
A 3 stage project, incorporating a 5-week Platform residency at Site Gallery, Sheffield, in collaboration with Anna Chrystal Stephens
. A Sick Logic explores elements of contemporary existence, alternative living strategies, re-learning and knowledge transfer as a practical political response to a perceived over-reliance on technology, and a dark seeming future socio-political landscape.
Heath #2, 2015
Through public facing working methods, we aim to explore survival techniques and living strategies in the context of the ongoing UK housing crisis and a perceived over-reliance on technology. An initial period of research will enhance our working knowledge and skills, achieved through a series of field trips and workshops, including training in shelter-building and bushcraft, fire-making, plant identification, permaculture and tool-making.
During the residency at Site Gallery, we will be able to test this learning through a series of activities; talks, seminars, workshops and studio time.
The project includes:
▸ The Artist Proposes
Group Exhibition, Site Gallery, December 2015
