Space, Lacuna, Proxemics

Andrew Bird and Christina Romero-Cross - collaborative residency January/February 2017

Space: is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction.
Lacuna: The spacial relationship between objects.
Proxemics: The study of how humans use space and the effects that population density has on behaviour, communication and social interaction.

Over the two months of our residency we intend to work collaboratively with each-other and the space at Back Lane West; making new work that is both site-specific and haptic. Our perceptual and sculptural reality is based around the habitation of this space.

Open evening event: 24th of February from 6-8pm
Open Studio: Saturday and Sunday 25th & 26th Feb between 11 and 4pm
