Sandra Crisp - Translocation Dislocation (words by Dean Reddick)

Welcome to the Translocation and Dislocation exhibition, a selection of eclectic artworks that have been placed or screened beyond the traditional gallery walls. Alongside the art, you can read written works by our First Responders. We will choose a different location for each artwork, the art might be placed in a complementary location (to add to the narrative) or juxtaposed against a competing backdrop to create new meaning.

Today Sandra Crisp's film 'Strange Attractors [...1.000 years]' beguiles and disturbs the viewer with its fractal forms, pulsing nerve-like images and commentary. The film, displayed on a tablet in a hollowed out tree stump is accompanied by the singing of woodland songbirds. Dean Reddick provides a written response as today's first responder.

The Return of The Machine Elves

The Machine Elves returned after their extended trip in hyperspace, bonged and fluid.

Pulverised by nonsensical plastics and polluted by dreamers they flashed their fractal teeth at the world.

Really they had no message for the rest of us already saturated in particles and pieces and practicalities.

Frustrated in every place they sought out the woody stumps.

Busted remnants of the World Tree.
