Lyn Ashby, DECODEX: Artistbooks and Postliteracy
11-14 December 2013
The contemporary artistsbook is a vibrant, open arena for an experiment in the evolution of literacy. This project investigates the structures and language forms of this new phase of literacy that, in honour of its experimental spirit, I term “postliteracy.” Postliteracy engages all the formal, sensory and material attributes and values of the artistsbook. Its images, texts, spaces and moments become components of its own particular grammar, integral to the experience of reading it. Each of these eight works pose a question for the book form itself and the expressive possibilities of the language forms that emerge in this experiment in literacy and the book.
This exhibition comprises the practical component of Lyn Ashby’s PhD Research.
Gwynedd Davies, Unfolding the Field State
11-14 December 2013
The flickering or streaming view from the window of a train or car is usually considered peripheral to immediate needs. However, the viewer’s stillness and the view’s movement may, through the sustained unfocused gaze, induce heightened feelings as a form of ‘field state’.
This research extends upon phenomenological arguments about the field state as a general mode of attending to the world into the field of video and voice, to explore how these experiences involve a heightened form of attention, one where feelings and emotions are important.
The video and voice works are presented in an installation as a reflection on both the processes of their development, and on the kinds of reflective and reflexive relationships they might establish with the spectator, unfolding as field states.
This exhibition comprises the practical component of Gwynedd Davies’ PhD Research.
