A collaboration between Adam Hines-Green and Dylan Spencer-Davidson as part of Art Licks Weekend 2016.
This former biscuit factory warehouse is the evocative setting for the site-specific collaboration, This is for me, this is with me, this is because of me, which incorporates sound and video projections triggered by motion sensor technology.
Upon entering, the visitor is confronted with a dark and cavernous space. As the visitor moves through the space, they re-animate it – dark corners and recesses are filled with light, movement and sound as they approach.
The video installations embedded in the space encompass fragmentary found footage, home videos, web content and CGI animation. Combined with immersive soundscapes, these pieces invite the visitor to explore new affective states, sparking associations and triggering emotive responses in mind and body as they travel through the areas of the installation.
By playfully engaging with the structural idiosyncrasies of the warehouse, these interventions enable the visitor to discover new ways of seeing and occupying the space. Far from being a passive observer of a narrative representation, the visitor is in control of the space around them and becomes a co-creator, regenerating the artists' half-remembered affective fragments through their own unique bodily hardware and emotional software.
This is for me, this is with me, this is because of me choreographs unique physical and emotional engagements with the suggestive spaces of this former factory warehouse.
