The Time Machine (Artist Callout) alldaybreakfast at Fringe Arts Bath
27 May - 12 June 2016
Time Travellers - bring us your conjectures, your hypotheses, your experiences, your conclusions - set out to defy temporal laws as we understand them. Innovative and exciting responses to the concept of Time and Time Travel are sought. Our Time Machine offers you the opportunity to disrespect time – use it to question, stretch, bend, and control time, to make unexpected things happen. Selected artists, performers, writers, musicians and scientists will have a day to play in the Time Machine. Their responses will be filmed to create a concomitant, evolving and cohesive multilayered durational installation.
We will build a Time Machine construction, evolved from Concrete Evidence and Vessel 10. Within the machine will be a video monitor installation. Each day during the festival, a different Time Traveler will develop their piece of work. We will film the daily events and include them in the evolving, multi-screen, video display inside the Time Machine, a dynamic process to coalesce different voices over the course of the festival. Materials that come out of the day’s events can be added to the installation, incorporated either in the room or into the Time Machine itself.
At the end of the festival we will invite participating artists to a symposium to discuss all the responses, outcomes, conclusions and successful time conquering strategies which have arisen from this project. http://www.fringeartsbath.co.uk
