RituallyReading&Researching






RRR was an experimental research laboratory, where durational visual-performance processes meet critical research methodologies. Across 12 hours (8 pm - 8 am) participants moved between ]ps[ (Hamlet Industrial Estate, Hackney Wick) and the Live Art Development Agency's Study Room (White Building, Hackney Wick) - on the hour, every hour, for 12 hours - unpacking peer chosen texts (in the broadest interpretation of the term) responding through collaborative performance processes, installation, text and audio. RRR occurred 4 times across the space of 3 years in Hackney Wick).

(This project was inspired by Li E Chen's 24 hours in Dreams campaign in which ]ps[ directors Bean & Benjamin Sebastian (together with Li) worked over a 24-hour duration, discussing, making, unmaking thinking and feeling.)
