‘Site/Non-site OR How many quarters does Birmingham have?’
3 December 2011
A guided walk of ‘Old Birmingham’ navigated by an accompanying visual essay.
Seven postcards and an A3 envelope were used to highlight historical and anecdotal discussion points on route from Grand Union to St Phillips Cathedral, via the canal network.
The walk was recorded as an artwork by artist Dallas Simpson using binaural recording techniques to capture a mixture of conversation and incidental ambient sound. To listen to this recording click here.
Open File is a curatorial conversation between artist Jack Brindley and curator Tim Dixon.
