Remuneration: minimum £100 per collaborator
We are two Scandinavian artists developing a video work which examines how the dominance of the eye/visual realm has shaped a specific landscape. It takes its outset in rural California, USA, but relates to a longer history of territorial expansion (‘Manifest Destiny’). While bound to the visual medium and photographic legacies, the work simultaneously treats a narrative rooted in touch and intimate sense-perceptions.
We are now looking for about ten blind collaborators who are interested in participating in an interview (recorded). Each person will observe at least one object solely through touch and describe/reflect upon it verbally. The interview will be conducted in person (face-to-face). No background or knowledge of arts required.
