I made new work for 'Diagrams' at the FormContent project space London. The work (entitled FINGER) focussed on indexicality, pointing and physical gestures as text and was made in response to a continued dialogue between with David Berridge and Alex Eisenberg regarding writing on and as performance (as part of Inside Performance).

Read David Berridge's presentation for Diagrams, which this video was part of, and his notes on my work here.
FormContent on Saturday 13 February and Sunday 14 February amongst an installation by Ami Clarke. Her screens, reminiscent of office cubicles and temporary exhibition stands, provide a spacial grid within the gallery space where to discuss and display the gathered materials.
Saturday 13 February - from 2 to 6 pm
- Dr. John Mullarkey’s lecture Diagrammatic Actualism, ACTUAL VIRTUAL (30’ ca)
“My argument is basically that, whereas Deleuze tends to think of his diagrams as virtual processes – as only a potentially concrete (or actual) thing – I believe that it is better to think of them as already actual processes.”
Touching on ideas relating to the working drawing and the performative object.
