Johan Gelper, ‘Semi Chisel’ (2013)
Mark Leckey, ‘BigBoxStatueAction’ (2003)
Live event at Tate Britain, London. Strapped together and reaching the same proportions as its sculptural counter-part (by Jacob Epstein), Leckey’s speaker stack explores the space in sonic equivalence to the solidity of the form in front of of it. Occasional emissions of largely appropriated sounds address the mass as if to probe and interrogate it in a manner that suggests it is trying to understand it, testing it out. When utilised for performance the sounds hit rib-rumbling low ends at ear-ringing volume.

Carlito Carvalhosa, ‘Precaucao de contato’ at Gallery Nara Roesler Sao Paulo (2014)
Riley Harmon, ‘What it is without the hand that wields it’ (2008)
As gamers die in a public video game server of a modified version of Counter-strike, a popular online first person shooter, the electronic solenoid valves dispense a small amount of fake blood. The trails left down the wall create a physical manifestation of virtual kills, bridging the two realities. The title is inspired by the Telefon Tel Aviv song of the same name.
Giny Vos, ‘Work to do’ (1985)
Intervention on the lighting scheme of the Europoint towers in Rotterdam.
