Redacting texts,…applying thinglyness to “things”

…organizing meaninglessness in “things”?

 

Ferguson and Storrie have redacted a variety of publications from Beckett plays and short stories to free gallery handout sheets, cookbooks and detective novels.

…TING FOR DOT is an interactive event where the audience will be asked to apply their own redacting systems to TING FOR DOT texts.

 

Tools and text to redact will be supplied.

 

 

Description of a town in Italy. Around 1986.

 

Spaces strung out along a line

 

A series of disjointed arcades

 

Arcades that shift

 

A small room opening off the street

 

Accretions of space

 

A garden

 

The square off the street

 

The square as crossroads

 

A marker in the square

 

Accidental effect: one pillar of the arcade blocks the vista

 

Inside the palace:

Two globes (celestial and terrestrial) and the vestigial library

Fortified against the world but also containing it

2 at once

2 places at once

being in 2 places at once

 

Singles sleeves

I bought a couple of singles today…they turned out to be almost unplayable but they were in battered, though really good, record company generic sleeves. I know these were designed to be seen with labels visible in the centre…but the sleeves often become detached from the 45s that are supposed to be in them and so I thought it might be interesting to look at these overlooked objects in isolation. I wish the first CBS sleeve had contained a Thelonius Monk record and I am pretty sure I don’t own anything on the Rocket label. Here are 18 pulled out randomly…
