Double bill! exhibition
Sunday 21st - Saturday 27th July 13:00 - 17:00 2013
The Artworks project space at The Barbican Art Trust Studios, Blackhorse Lane will combine elements of exhibition and workshop to create a week long exploration of how we use, share and occupy space.
i made a tool to measure space
The objects consist of different coloured fabric sections which refer to Edward T Hall's proximity space: In his theory 18" = Intimate space, 48” = Personal space, 144” = social space & 300” = public space. It explores the idea of Hall’s definitive and definite rule, how it works in reality and how it can be used to define/redefine our own space.
It is constructed with a Brechtian philosophy in mind and attempts to physically manifest the absurdity of theories used to manage and understand society. It is an exploration the societal notions and expectations of how we occupy spaces and gives a means to play in this arena.
i am surrounded by objects that define me

This project follows an earlier body of work "some even grew rich and became the object of their neighbours envy" and continues to explore status and the notion of aspirational objects.
This is first event in a year-long project researching making, sharing and subsequent archiving.
