Trip Hazard installation on show in Brighton and Amsterdam

Together with choreographer Yael Flexer, installation artist Nic Sandiland (Senior Lecturer BA Fine Art, Middlesex University) works under the name Flexer & Sandiland.

Their recent installation Trip Hazard (2013) will be on display in Brighton and Amsterdam during February and March 2014. Part one-liner gag, part public intervention, Trip Hazard forms a physical and immediate bridge between everyday inadvertent actions in public spaces and the potentially catastrophic consequences such actions could have.

Brighton Dome, Brighton, United Kingdom

12 Mar 2014 – 16 Mar 2014

From the artists' webpage:

Having spent a number of years looking at continuous connections between the viewer and digital performer I decided to revisit the more commonplace interaction of discrete cause and effect; where a particular action in the physical world might trigger a pre-set event in a digital space. This new direction was to some degree influenced through my involvement with Gary Steven’s Wake Up and Hide (Matt’s Gallery 2007): a video installation linking to the unintentional sounds of the gallery visitors to reactions contained within a series of video clips. Like Wake Up and Hide, Trip Hazard also looks at the inadvertent actions of the general public but concentrates on a proposed transfer of momentum between physical environment and digital space.
