shown at Space-time arts festival Wysing, curated by Mark Titchner, Aug 2012.

One of a series of experimental works considering an obscured but current text in the public domain, that bears witness to the recent and increasingly exposed construction of consensus, arising from a bias in spectacular news reporting: an over-simplified ‘victims-and-aggressor’ meme, flocking from one focus of this sort to another, (and not unique to the tabloid) that performs a particularly consistent form of reality management, paradoxically by the very enactment of slippage in textual meaning.

This experimental series will form a collection of material shown over a period of a year at different venues to then be shown as a full collection in one venue, whereby seperate threads of reference will co-concur and perform as a suggestive network of associations.
