A Scenario for Three Circumstances: A, B, C
2011
Sculptural scenario

A ‘scenario’ is a sequence of events or a setting; a ‘circumstance’ is a condition or situation within which an event takes place. ‘A Scenario for Three Circumstances: A, B, C’ comprises three parts: a fragmented object-sculpture, a sound-composition and a setting for spectatorship. ‘Circumstance A’ is a sculpture fragmented into seven movable parts, each sitting on castors. When complete it is a perfect concrete square, just too high be seen over, divided following the arrangement of a tangram puzzle. ‘Circumstance B’ is a sound-collage of gunshots recorded at a shooting school and air travelling through a trumpet arranged in melisma, a progression of single notes, emitted from seven megaphones. ‘Circumstance C’ is a viewing platform: a single segment of stadium seating from where the audience can spectate.
