A Constructed World, Hospitality, 2001 (presented by Anna Hess, 2011)

For the following meeting of Happy Friends we will meet on Sunday June 9th at 5 pm to discuss texts from “Speech Object” (2011) by Australian artist group A Constructed World (Geoff Lowe and Jacqueline Riva). They will be present via Skype thanks to Guo Hao. When the question came out: what is this about? the following gentle suggestion was made by Geoff:

Re: speech object- how to consume?
Hey Hao

well I think maybe the best way is to read these 2 short texts
…try this at home p27
speech objects p73
both are very short
-or a bit longer
a new role or repertoire… p32

the idea is to begin to track how the audience may be involved in a work even before it is made

to think away  from creation and expression ( where an art work appears from nothing)
to translation and diffusion

so with the audience rather than thinking they don’t-know ( stupid public who have to be educated)
begin to think about how any work of art may have origins in its audience.

its a prompt its not a manual
the book rose out of an exhibition in 4 parts that attempted to chart how a work and its reception could move around in space and time

hope this helps a bit!
