Artwork or Network

Friday, 23 May 2014 00:00 Published in Web

Artwork or Network was produced specifically for Rules of the Game, a series of overlapping exhibitions held at the Surface Gallery, Nottingham, during 2007. 

Based on a single Internet connected screen and simple set of instructions, it asked the gallery visitor to "leave" the space, find an Internet connected computer and log on to a specified web address.  


Once on line participants were asked whether they thought the installation they had seen in the gallery was an 'artwork' a 'network' or neither of these and to select a coloured rectangle to signify their opinion.  They also had the opportunity to leave their name, location and a website they would like other people to visit. Finally they were encouraged to invite 5 of their friends to do the same.

As more people took part, so more rectangles became 'occupied'. The image changed on a daily basis and the work was complete as soon as all of the rectangles were 'occupied'.

There were three ways to take part: Visit the Surface Gallery to collect the instructions, hear about the instructions by word of mouth, or by being invited by someone who has already taken part.  Much like the process involved in viewing an exhibition or particular work in a gallery.

Social connections 'spread' around the Internet - each person 'digitally' touching the next.

Point Addition - Mix

Wednesday, 01 January 1986 00:00 Published in Holography

Title: Point Addition - Mix

Date: 1986

Edition: Installation

Materials: Reflection hologram on glass, wood plinth, electronic dimmers, spot lights.

Size: Installation - Galler wall and floor - Hologram H 25.4 x W 20.32cm (10 x 8 inches)

Notes: An installation produced for Space Open Studios, Hackney.
During the late 1980's Andrew Pepper occupied a Space Studio in the London borough of Hackney.  The group of artists who worked in this old industrial building organised a series of "Open Studios" to showcase.

Point Addition - Mix used a previously produced hologram (Point Addition) which was hung upside down on the studio wall.  Holograms are normally hung so that the light needed to illuminate them can be shone onto them from the ceiling.  Here, it was possible to illuminate the piece from below.

Directly in front of the piece stands a wood plinth containing three narrow beam spotlights which shine up onto the hologram and allow its recorded image to be reconstructed.  On the plinth, where visitors would normally expect to find an object (using a traditional museum/gallery display vocabulary and expectation), were there rotary control knobs.  Each allowed a corresponding spotlight to be dimmed or turned of completely.

As holograms normally require a single source of light to reconstruct their recorded image, any extra light can cause disruption to the display - often resulting in multiple images or blurring.  Here this possible disruption is given to the observer who can add and subtract extra light to the display.  The result is a multiplication of the luminous 'dots' help in the holographic recording.  In effect the gallery visitor is given control and an opportunity to 'mix' points in space and therefore 'construct' their own 'structure' in real time and in three-dimensions.
