Day 4.

Alanna Lynch - Concealed and Contained

With this ongoing project, since 2009, I have been collecting my hair as it falls from my head and spinning it into a yarn. During the performance I continue the process of crocheting from the top of my head down over my body. Eventually I plan to completely cover myself. The very qualities of my natural kinky hair that make it unruly and coarse are those that facilitate the manipulation of the material. I work with these qualities and the affective state of my hair: the way it can be perceived as beastly, as something not-human, something to be feared, to challenge constructed aesthetic notions and values.

Sebastian Hau Walker - Ausculta (Vision Serpents)

Creates a performance installation of warm noise and rough memories, live-feed projection and VHS tapes; fetal dopplers and Mayan bloodletting rituals. (Re)mediated bodies, continuously growing, regressing, demonstrate the twinned physical process of (my) human and taped memory; invoked when re-played, re-presented, cyclical and serpentine, within the performance itself - a post(?)modern ritual.

Robert Watts - UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE

If the present position is clear, the future direction is unclear. If the future direction is clear, the present position is unclear.

"Werner Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle is a fundamental, inescapable property of the world" - Steven Hawking.

This performance/sound piece explores a paradoxical conversation. Removing art from art, science from science and bringing the two together to form a conversation in which one informs the other and vice versa.

Phillip Bedwell - Echoes

A simple breath can lead to a transformation. A union of mind and body and a knowledge for that everything we can strive towards that we have to leave our old selves behind. Through a everyday setting, my body and base materials I seek to explore this twinning of both memorial and celebration. I invite you to witness this exploration.

James Sherman - IN/OUT

A sound/noise action with vocal/body elements in an attempt to explore the relationship between polarities and the nature of dichotomy. Sound, silence and noise will converge around, and within, the body to form a unified dialectic investigation.
