Writing through the already written is an evolving and experimental curatorial practice.
It takes the form of something-like a treasure hunt, the most recent trial was in central London.
We are developing the - in this case photographic- treasure hunt as part of Critical Practice.
Critical Practice are a cluster of artists, researchers and academics hosted by Chelsea College of Arts. We have a longstanding interest in art, public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original, participatory events.
Treasure Hunt Tester: London
DATE: Tuesday 15. March 2011
LOCATION: Covent Garden Tube Station, London
DURATION: 70 minutes
Metod: Numbers form 1 to 100.
Neil: Letters of Critical Practice
Phil: Taking pictures of the notion of time
Karem: Taking pictures of tourists taking pictures
Dan: Taking pictures of as many shop price labels
Sharon: Taking pictures of as many different animals as possible
By rough consensus we take Neil's proposal and amend it by adding a rule:
Take pictures of letters consecutively to spell Critical Practice, and the person with the most words/iterations 'wins'.
And we were off........
You can see how the project developed here.
The project is related to Trash into Treasure, Waste and partly inspired #TransActing
