For the eighth week at ﬁg-2 Edmund Cook will produce the voiceover and soundtrack to a short video currently in post-production. The video, with the working title ‘Enumerators’, depicts an interaction with the eponymous group of objects, which use a ﬁctional technology to record people’s thoughts in a public space. However, these objects do not function as initially desired, redrawing the boundaries between interior and exterior states. The work and its process of production reflects the artist’s interest in staging scenarios with tactile sculptural objects in order to look at how we record and exchange information and experiences in the context of both current and previous technological conditions.
Edmund Cook, alongside collaborator Laurence Byrne, will run two live recording sessions to create and animate the sound for the video at the opening on Monday and on Thursday evening. Throughout the week, the artist will use the ICA Studio as an editing suite to incorporate the recordings into the ﬁlm.
