This project started with an assembling of 26 boxes, and envelope &. In mailing it to 24 people, I deconstructed it and sent parts, fragments. The responses that come back will form the sum of more boxes. In line with documenta 15's concept of lumbung (a storehouse for the good of the community), I will be mailing a new assembly to the original 26 boxers. To date (17 Feb 2021), 13 boxes have come back - and the rhythms are rumbling shapes.
This is a deliberate attempt by me to create a postal dance, a spontaneously choreographed correspon-dance. It gets made up as it moves along. It follows many examples of cross-platform, interdisciplinary art making, in which I have very little qualification.
The project aims to run for 26 weeks and will officially end on 28 June 2021. On 32nd June, there will be a party at the 5ft Storyhouse. This all runs on Mellorian Time and some of the party details are on the Events page.
