Info on participants:

Adam Chodzko’s multidisciplinary practice explores the real interactions and imagined possibilities of human behaviour as they are played out at the edges of culture, memory, and visibility.  Between ourselves: what are our limits of attention and energy? And (between the two of us)… how can we sleep?

Bea McMahon is an artist based in Amsterdam. She is trying to make a technology of gesture as an endlessly deformable thing that can deliver all its information in one go. For instance a recent work Aftermath 2018 (shown at, Amsterdam and Cave Gallery, Tokyo), was a performance that enacted the construction of a gesture that could rotate the idea of an horse.

Rebecca Ross: My work is concerned with the agency of images, media and data in processes of urban change with a focus on outdoor media and design as a knowledge practice. My major projects include London is Changing and Urban Pamphleteer. I am currently working on a manuscript about postcodes and cultures of addressing. Tweets @handsinmachines

Samantha Taylor uses sound recordings and live performance to explore social and historic lineage of mysticism, ritual and its part within cultural change in society.
