ROTOR review in The Independent:
Quite the reverse experience is to be had at the latest Siobhan Davies project. You go expecting something cerebral. You end up, well, if not having a ball, then most thoughtfully entertained. Having built her own handsome studio space in south London, the choreographer has used it not just to create and show her work, but also to orchestrate conversations with other artists, from potters to poets.
At the hub of Rotor is a piece by Davies based on a line of dancers perambulating round a central spot, like the hand of a clock. The monotony is broken only when they introduce disturbances which create kinks, dodges and swirls. It's a bracingly simple idea, mesmerising to watch, and it's crucial to see it before other works in the gallery. This way you understand the point of reference of, say, engineer Ben Tyers's silver sculpture which turns on its plinth to appear magically liquid, or Clare Twomey's tableful of unglazed pots, silently weeping in a slow collapse as they struggle to contain the water that's poured into them – a startling metaphor for the cycle of life.

TYPOGRAPHY IN THE TREES
22nd March, Monday - The garden as a three dimensional page
(and BBQ lunch)
Car Park, Wilson Road
10am - 5pm
 
The college is making plans to turn some of the car park at Wilson
Road into a garden - this is a project that will happen over a long
period of time - but the first stage is to inhabit the space.
 
This project is the first step towards transforming this space by
initiating some activity.
 
We will be building highly visible sculptural typography to be seen
from both the school and the street.
 
Using any found objects, junk and detritus, we will collaborate to
develop a three dimensional visual language, that will make the first
step in transforming the car park into a new environment.
The process will be captured as a film/stop motion animation that
will be shown as part of the film marathon on Wed 24th.
 
Bring what you can -
Old furniture
String / Rope
Plastic Bags
Tools
Barbecue food

Have you read a book / article / interview / essay that has radically
changed your thinking? Or maybe you have invented a new way of making

Calling for Book Art / Conservation / Printmaking Students for collaboration (any levels)

Abstract:
Questioning the reliability and quality of the information from the traditional mass media such as broadcasting company, newspaper, book etc. The information from the traditional media is it really not as “fake” as the new media (internet)?
An underground project tries to explore the possibility of applying new media approach (open source, web 2.0 etc) in traditional media - books.

Fun part:
• No hardcore deadline
• Collaboration period and workload are up to you
• Calling for as much people as we can
• Challenging and groundbreaking works will be done and shown to wide range of audience.

Collaboration period:
February’ 09 until the end of this academic year

First meeting:
End of January, details will be emailed

Contact:
Please drop me an email if you are interested, you can decide to keep going or not after the first meeting.
