Disbury&Wilson is a relatively new collaborative endeavour. The Coopers Gallery’s 12 Hour Jamming Symposium allowed us to declare our collaborative practice, through performative typing, to other art collectives and peers.
The day was long and jam-packed, excuse the pun. Of note was Ganghut’s musical declaration, (LIVE)publishing’s active ensemble piece, and keynote speeches from Stine Hebert and Maria Lind.
I have been taking a bit of a break this summer, so this provided a nice dip back.
Thank you to Sophia at the Cooper, and all those involved, for including us in the programme and for an enjoyable day.
I always heartily agree on
recollections of the 21st night
of September. (1)
but I actually don’t recall anything
of any great consequence.
I think it’ll be okay though.

Lada Wilson and I started collaborating in early 2013, with the interAction(s) project. More recently we have begun to correspond via typewritten text through the post. We hope to engage in performative live-writing at the upcoming Studio Jamming Symposium in Dundee on the 25th of July.
Here we will engage in performative live writing in the space with our typewriters. There will be no spoken words and the only exchange will be through the pounding of keys and the resulting text.
I anticipate this performance will be very loud with the exchange being heavily scored by the clickclickpings of our old ‘writers.
Although we don’t want an online record of this project, as it is very process based, I will probably record my own thoughts and workings here.
