Neither-Nor [Art / Writing] is a performance of creative practice processes – thinking as making, reading in fragments, uncertainties and failures, worked and un-worked writing, and everyday conversations. Continual motion and everything in between. The pauses, transitional stages and inconclusive phases. This is a project about neither knowing, nor art and writing. Fragments of text, conversations and image. Neither-nor finding and losing the edges. OPENS: 8 June 2018 // EXHIBITION & CONVERSATIONS: 9 June - 15 July 2018 // CAT PROJECT SPACE

At the Bottom of an Ocean of Air

At the Bottom of an Ocean of Air comprises of many home-made barometers. Each barometer is constructed from simple materials - glass jars, latex, water, plasticine, wire and batteries - and responds to changes in atmospheric pressure. As air pressure constantly changes, it creates slippages and breakages in the electronic circuits, causing tiny lights to flicker in ways that are reminiscent of the bioluminescent creatures that inhabit deep atmospheres.

Tartrazine is a synthetic lemon yellow azo dye primarly used as a food colouring. It is also know as E number E102, Colour Index 19140 or Yellow No. 5. Tartrazine is a commonly used colour all over the world, mainly for yellow, and can be used with Brilliant Blue FCF (E113) or Green S (E142) to produce various green shades. Like many azo dyes tartrazine is manufactured using petrochemicals as starting stock, and was formerly manufactured using chemicals derived from coal tar as the starting material. - Wikipedia.org accessed 11 January 2018
