MediaWall: A Game of Jug

Dr Conor Wilson’s A Game of Jug is showing on the MediaWall, in the Commons building at Newton Park, Bath Spa University (until 29 June).

A loop of thirty images show for a minute each on the thirty-screen wall, which is over seven metres in height. This gives a unique opportunity to see these layered, high-resolution images in all-at-once detail.

Wilson has developed a practice-research process that incorporates making, drawing, documenting, writing and existing objects – the latter often included through ‘guided chance’. The exhibited images are by-products of an ongoing ‘game of Jug’, instigated by Martin Heidegger’s essay, ‘The Thing’, and the subsequent purchase of a jug made at Prinknash Abbey, home and workplace of concrete poet, Dom Sylvester Houédard. Two further texts [‘The Handle’ by Georg Simmel and ‘me as poet rather than critic’ by Dom Sylvester Houédard] and two books of images were added to the game, setting up a play between analogue and digital, image and text, two and three dimensional making.
