The week of CAST Sundowner 2014, or, the way to make something distant become closer is not to move towards it but to make the distance conspicuous
I was invited to write an essay by CAST, Helston, Cornwall, following a one week residency of short projects and events organised with eight other artists.
The text introduces some of the ideas that were developed over the week through the planned projects and events, as well as other experiences that were not planned. The uniting idea is conspicuous distance, wherever it emerges - between host and guest, or between long-separated associates, from experiences of duration, or when normally static objects acquire a new found mobility.
The essay is available to read in full here.
