We delivered a workshop at Ocean Studios on critical writing and sketchbooking. This was a deep topography of the Royal William Yard and its environs. It incorporated ideas for site-writing and landscape findings.
For the Plymouth Art Weekender 2015 festival Driftingspace produced a short video piece on the changing terrain and topography of Devonport and Mount Wise in Plymouth. The work combines our interests in the building typologies, materialities and landscape naming of the regeneration of the area. The work was show no n the Mayor’s Parlour at the Devonport Guildhall for Bureau Doove.
Driftingspace led a walk that responded to artists’ work in the four venues displaying the Walk On exhibition in Plymouth. This was the first ambulatory event for Textually Active as we wandered parts of the city plan, playing on artistic ideas of walking arts practice. It included all, none, or some of the following:
Establishing desire lines
Making the bounds
Pointing at things with sticks
Not following in the footsteps of Scott, Shackleton or Nigel Havers
