Beautiful, Newlyn. <<prev list next>>

While walking around Newlyn I asked people if what they were doing could be considered sculpture. Then, after some conversation, we each videotaped the other doing the same or a similar activity.

Archive begun 1994. Newlyn, England. Out on the street, in five strangers’ homes, in four people’s work place, and in a public garden. Ten people participated. A signed copy of the video was made for each participant, five of them taking theirs during the opening and leaving their signatures behind. Project can be repeated. Archive in the collection of the artist.

Also see catalytic text.
