March 2020 saw the first lockdown in London and with it the closure of arts venues and nightclubs. The shared liminal space of the dance was gone and replaced with isolation—isolation writ large in the empty streets and architectures of the city. The space I present is an artefact, an abstraction and condensation, of the countless walks through those vacant architectures and city soundscapes. It is a psychogeography scripted in sound and graffiti. A collection of photos and tunes slightly altered and mixed into architectures representative of an altogether different liminal space that the city became.
The space is meant to be explored without restriction in any direction. Walls are images and images are walls. They are not boundaries but rather items that shape perspective. It is best to play with perspective and lose yourself in the spaces in-between.
'agathering' is dedicated to my uncle, Steve Blankenship, who unbeknownst to himself has been a consistent source of artistic inspiration. This one's for you, Stevie.
