A new work, from my walking as research and using ropes to record memory. 

This week i am making connections, from further reading and a visit to the Rauschenberg exhibition at the Tate Modern.

A Pole storing the cords from one of my walks
Khipu cords are paths guiding the hand, eye and mind to the trans-temporal source of things

From further reading, the  concept is not uniquely Andean.

Further evidence cited of recording  and storing information on a cord:

Herodotus mentions one in use during the Persian Wars.
New Mexico Pueblos
The Ryukun Islands

Furthermore, a biblical reference:
Numbers15: 37 - 38
Prescribes knotted fringes as a vector of memory.

Connection with Robert Rauschenberg:

I visited the Rauschenberg exhibition at the Tate Modern this week,. As I made my piece QUIPUCAMAYO  and  my ideas, developed, it felt very connected with  Rauschenberg's central occupation from the 1980's and beyond  using art as a tool for the promotion of intercultural dialogue.

Looking forward:

I will be organising two new walks in the new year, in London and Margate. The walks are an opportunity to openly and collaboratively engage in sited poetry readings and interventions. I will be posting more information in January. Please get in touch if you would like to take part in planning and taking part in either of  these walks.

The Art of Putting Information on a String

I am delighted to have had my piece "Quipu" chosen  by The Artists Pool, to be included as a part of the exhibition titled " Threads "at Espacio Gallery in March 2017 .

In connection with this piece, I will also be organising a walk which will include, poetry readings drawing and walking books. If you would like to take part please do get in touch. The walks are informal , easy going and fun. There is more information about my walking practice in previous blog posts,

This walk will take place from Espacio Gallery on the Bethnall Green Rd. to various sites along the route of Sculpture in the City.I will be sending out more information in the New year,

There is more information about my walking practice in previous blog posts, as well as in the link included below:
