Reboot: A hole in the shape of something

A weekend workshop on visual design in performance with Tim Spooner

Tim Spooner’s performance work consists of building experimental systems of people, objects, technology and language, where these things and their behaviours become enmeshed and inter-reliant.

This workshop will be a series of experiments appealing to senses beyond the obvious: looking at changing the scale on which processes are perceived, finding relationships with objects, putting the focus somewhere else, hearing things rather than seeing them, translating movement into sound, backgrounding the human being, becoming transparent on the stage.

The workshop could be interesting for anyone working in performance, sound, sculpture or design.

Date: Sat 27th + Sun 28th November, 10.30am-5pm
Location: Clod Ensemble Studios, Design District, Greenwich Peninsula


About Tim Spooner
Tim Spooner works in performance, drawing, painting, sculpture and design. He uses materials and objects in ways that reveal unexpected properties, aiming to open up perspectives beyond the human scale and discover new flavours which are weird and alluring. Interested in unpredictability, his work is an exercise in balancing control with chaos in the handling of the materials he’s using.
Since 2010, he has created a series of increasingly complex live works focussed on revealing desire in objects. More recently he’s worked on collaborative projects with artists in other fields like musicians and choreographers. Tim was design consultant on This is My Room.
