2008 Rational Rec, London (Bethnal Green)
A Rational Rec Commission
We were asked by Rational Rec to come up with an idea for a night of interdisiplinary art and music at their Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club base. We decided to try and make a collaborative show that was progressively collapsed into a single site-specific book. Rational Rec teamed us up with Matthew Shlomowitz (composer), David Helbich (composer/performance artist), Tomma Wessel (recorder player), Shila Anaraki (dancer). The show was such a success we formed a group called InterInterInter and did a tour in Europe.
For the show in De Bijloke, Gent, performed in a very old dissection theatre, we repeated the show four times with different audiences before binding the book in the atrium. So we took this opportunity to print live CMYK so each audience had a unique experience.
For the Borealis festival in Bergen we were resident artists, doing numerous shows throughout the festival and with a HQ in the Landmark Cafe. We created our own interactive typeface for the show, called the Interbet. Each character had to be cut out manually and could be scaled through a normal pdf dialog box. We also made this Conversation Piece for talking with diners. It was based on pre-electronic computers that relied on cards that could be sorted with punched holes. We reversed the process of Public Relations, or PR, with PRinterPRinterPRinter; providing an entertaining experience fot the participant and useless information for the festival.
