On Assignment. Inge Doesburg Gallery 2013. Review by Jamie Hanton







Otago Daily Times. ‘On Assignment’ exhibition 2013
















1997 Canberra public performance, part of a larger project coordinated by Stephen Hurrell.

While wearing ‘Headset’ I publicly played an externalised internal ‘game’ of one-sided chess against myself playing cards (Patience), one evening in Canberra’s Melbourne building. One video looped the poem (below), the other video showed a  journey by bike from the ANU Sculpture workshop to my apartment in Turner.

The modified piano hammers are activated in response to signals from my brain,  which creates a tapping on my head to (almost) complete the circuit.
