and Katya Lewis within our Graduate Studio Award Programme
"Being around predominantly visual artists has informed my practice greatly during this year, visual art influencing sound art, a slow osmosis through the walls of APT. This I find interesting, sound travels but isn’t visual art supposed to stay put? Thanks for opportunity, community & education".
David Bloor Sound systems (2018)
Emergent behaviour is not dependent on its individual parts, but on their relationships to one another. It cannot be predicted by examination of a system's individual parts. It can only be predicted, managed, or controlled by understanding the parts and their relationships.
A colony of wood ants move across paper attached to a wall, Tiglio, Italy; a raft of teal ducks skim flies from the water surface, Mývatn, Iceland. Sonic events recorded in forensic detail, transferred into systems that may reveal mechanical weaknesses and imperfections or rendered silence. Physical process at play, friction, tension, resistance and vibration, transduction of multiple surface disruptions.

Awards A.P.T. Graduate Studio Award, A.P.T. Gallery, London (2017).
“I feel really fortunate to have been part of A.P.T’s graduate programme over the past year. My practice has had the chance to develop a lot in this time, being influenced by the other artists and exhibitions here at A.P.T. I found opportunities like curating the member’s show really rewarding, particularly as it taught me a lot about the curatorial process. I am very grateful to all the support I have had from A.P.T and all its artists.”
