Remote Performances in Nature and Architecture


Based on a series of residencies and radio broadcasts produced by London Fieldworks in collaboration with Resonance 104.4fm at Outlandia in Glen Nevis, the Remote Performances project enabled twenty invited artists to consider and engage in transmissions, sound performances and dialogues on their artmaking strategies immersed in this specific rural environment of mountain, forest and river; flora and fauna. Some artists engaged in dialogue with people living and working in the area with a range of specialisms and experience in, for examples, forestry, mountain culture, wildlife, tourism, and local history. This book explores the ways in which being in the field impacts on artists and permeates through to the artworks they create.

NULL OBJECT: Gustav Metzger thinks about nothing


Using bespoke software, London Fieldworks produced 3D shape information from EEG readings of Metzger’s brainwaves as he attempted to think about nothing. This data was translated into instructions for a manufacturing robot, which carved out the shapes from the interior of a block of stone to create a void space. An introduction by the artists, a text by Gustav Metzger and four contextualising essays by writers across the fields of literature, art, science and technology explore the diverse historical and conceptual grounding for and broader implications of Null Object’s production process.

He Who Sleeps Dines


He Who Sleeps Dines was made as part of the Material Conditions series of e-books, published by Proboscis. Summary: Extracts from notebooks and photo documentation evoking the strategy within nature of torpor or hibernation as a way of surviving limited resources and inhospitable environment; the speculation that hibernation is a latent ability in humans.
"The image sequence of He Who Sleeps Dines peddles discourse as story...London Fieldworks want domestic space to double as a lab for metacognitive research." (Unshelfmarked: Reconceiving the artists' book by Michael Hampton, published by Uniformbooks.)
