Grain: Whitechapel Performance – Video

On July 26th 2012 the new multi screen video work Grain was performed at the Whitechapel. This video documents the event.

Taking on the voice of a self learning algorithm Charlie Tweed’s lecture uses re-processed video footage to outline a new model for the Isle of Grain, Kent. It responds to its history as a site for resources and current plans for removing the island’s population of birds and humans and replacing them with an airport. It proposes a new relationship between ecology and technology by looking at the potential of assimilating Grain’s technologies, objects, birds and human population into new assemblages and hybrids.
