As Wimbledon College of Arts enters a period of reorganisation and structural change to provide a rich, integrated approach to making performance, site-specific artists Forster & Heighes establish a base station from which to conduct an active and eclectic survey of the educational landscape.

About

Via eye vane, foot plate and baseline; chain, prism and pole, they will plot not only how the college buildings function practically, but also how they position themselves in the minds and imagination of staff, students, and visitors, and how less tangible factors concerning atmosphere, materiality and spatial dynamics might offer up a more provocative set of coordinates from which to navigate a course of study.

Deliberately slow to find their bearings, obtuse in angle, and uncertain in their setting out, the artist-surveyors will, through the use of film, text and structural intervention, recalibrate the senses of location awareness and directional finding - a fluid, playful, reconnaissance that will incorporate not only benchmarks, supervision and gradation, but error, inaccuracy, slackness and variation too.
