Heading east

On Friday the aa2a artists were invited to take part in a 'Compass Safari' with Simon Fathfull. We set off from the centre of Parkers Piece with a compass, each in a different direction. I headed east and soon found myself back at Anglia Ruskin. The compass took me into the new science building (see previous blog entry). It created a different way of navigating the space and the building interfered with the compass, so I could no longer be sure which way I should be going. I tried the different floors to find a way out - the compass pointed direct to a fire exit, I hesitated and thought about pressing the bar. The camera hanging at an angle from my coat created a film of my journey that was unfamiliar to me when i watched it - the disruption to my former view and relationship to the place was unexpected and provocative - thank you Simon!
