Artist's notes:

I am relieved to be working with two artists rather than one, if for no other reason than to change the dynamic of the exercise. I have spoken to a few people about needing to break the procedural structure of the work, to surprise myself, but I am in two minds about this free-thinking approach. I believe there is enough room within the exercise for slipperiness and rebellion, it is just a matter of finding (or noticing) these moments.

David and Joyce bring a great enthusiasm to the task, and there is a sense of joviality in the air. It is lovely to see how connected they are as collaborators and a couple – their rememberings are woven deeply into their own ongoing dialogues. There is more a sense of negotiating the rules as we go and flexibility in the structure. This allows more space for me to construct a drawing. Some people comment it looks a little like a couple dancing. Many sound artists are remembered.
