Low Residency – Day 9 – Group Tutorials

For this group tutorial we were divided into groups of three and were given a clear plan of what we were to do. 20 minutes for each person, You had to describe your problem, challenge or choice and then the other two people in the group had to ask open questions only. The purpose of this was that when responding to the open questions, you have the opportunity to access your own inner teacher. At the beginning we were given a finite amount of time to reflect on what our issues for discussion were. My issues were: Worried about contextualising…

Low Residency – Day 6 & 7 – Collaboration

On the first day we were divided into random groups and given a brief to reflect upon. Responding to local architecture and landscape. Explore the edgelands, the permanent and the meanwhile. React to Change Trace History Imagine the Future Build Fictions.

Whilst in the centre of Peckham we were aware of several shops that we closing down and one in particular, Iceland had removed all of the…

Low Residency – Day 4 – Sound Workshop

During the Sound Workshop with Ed Kelly Sharktracks.co.uk we experimented with recording sound using field recorders and then editing sound using Audacity. Ed spoke about the field Recorder the Zoom H1 and the Quadraphonic Field Recorder Zoom H2. He encouraged us to consider sound events when recording sound and we experimented with removing Hiss from the audio. Before we recorded the sound we set the audio levels on the devices so that the sound being recorded was at an appropriate level. Some of the features we experimented with in Audactity were: Noise Reduction At Zero Crossings Clip Reduction Fade tool…

Low Residency – Day 2 – Peckham Gallery Visits

Camberwell Art Space We first visited an exhibition of paintings and other works by David Troostwyk who had previously taught at College of Camberwell.  A paintstakingly catalogued collection of work some of which had not been on display before. I was drawn to the rocks he had collected from Culloden – perhaps this is because it has some relevance to my current investigations into Evocative Objects and the absent space left behind once an object is removed. In the catalogue he references the drawings of such objects (Black and White Paintings) outlines of objects from a tramps doss box from…
