Abstract

A floor strewn with beer cans, bits of scrap metal, ceramic bowls, curious, miscellaneous electronics and wires: a collection of sundry things to make sound. Tetsuya Umeda, Dirty Electronics and Tim Shaw create a series of performance-installations that embrace ‘working in public’. Objects and things are explored in situ, in time, in memory. There is a prioritisation of sound. It is only through the dismantling and analyzing of things that we may understand their structure … making and unmaking become a processual part of performance. This unique collaboration focuses on performing in ‘each other spaces’; and how prototypic, extended electronic circuits and technological processes may intersect with materials and physical objects within a space.
