IMPLEMENTS, ACTIONS AND A SCORING OF MOMENTS
a part of Line Drawing
curated by Linda Marie Walker
South Australian School of Art
July - August 2008

implements, actions and a scoring of moments involved the installation of an arena of objects - of bits and pieces cobbled together from past projects - to produce a setting for the staging of actions. A score was developed which involved a sequence of instructions outlining a set of possibilities for engaging each of the 'implements' presented.

The booklet was given to four willing bodies: those of John Barbour, Linda Marie Walker, Bridget Currie and Stephen Whittington. The booklet was positioned as a device used to produce a specific kind of awkward encounter, between participants and the work, and between each other. The score was soon abandoned for disarray.
