I proposed getting participants to stack 70 cubes, first in linear manner, as a wall which revealed one of four composite images of Tate Modern past and present. The participants would then be invited to tear down the wall and use the cubes to create their own artwork, in a non linear manner.
I didn't get selected for part of the project in the Tate Modern but I did get selected for the Plymouth end of the project, which in my case was to be staged in a warehouse near the College.
Here's a link to a compilation of mainly time-lapse videos of participants playing with my cubes: https://vimeo.com/253684191
|The cubes are made from cardboard boxes. when the cardboard boxes are stacked as a wall, one of four composite images is exposed:|
The images were made to look something like screen-prints by manipulating them in Photoshop and then splitting them up into 70 squares - 10 columns and 7 rows. They were printed in 2 colours using a Risograph machine.
Printing was a laborious process - it took 3 long days. Sticking all 280 images onto the boxes using double-sided tape took another 3 long days.
|One of the composite images revealed on the wall:|
Left hand side: Louise Bourgeous' "I do, I undo, I redo", the first project in the Turbine Hall.
Right hand side: Olafur Eliasson's "The Weather Project" - a big orange "sun" in the roof that encouraged people to sun-bathe
|Another of the composite images. This is of Bankside power station when it was still generating electricity|
|One of the works art in the non-linear part of the exercise. |
