Wine Games: Music and Dance

by Joe Stevens
Dates
Tuesday 17 April 2012 - Saturday 19 May 2012

What happens when certain laws are simulated and certain other laws are no longer simulated? For Wine Games: Music and Wine Games: Dance Joe Stevens has constructed sequences using a program that generates music and dance respectively as determined by the random arrangement of colours in packets of Wine Gums. Audience members are invited to interpret the sequences using the props available.

The practice of Joe Stevens concerns the language of new media. This could be described as being a new form of literacy encapsulating the areas of systems, play and design. A graduate of the Contemporary Arts BA course at Nottingham Trent University and the Interactive Media MA at Goldsmiths University of London, Stevens works in performance, sculpture and installation. Methods have been developed through several residencies, including a six-month stay at the National Art Studio in South Korea, in addition to group exhibitions and a solo show in 2010.

There will be a private view of this work on Friday 11th of May from 6 to 8pm.
