Found dust and sound
Commissioned by Beacon Art Project, Lincolnshire
Budget: £5000 plus material and travel expenses
After the fact was an installation produced in a derelict Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse in Bicker Lincolnshire. Over a period of two weeks the dust that had gathered on the floor, since it’s abandonment in the 1960’s was meticulously cleaned, and the exposed wooden floor polished to create a sumptuous pattern dating from 1776, when the house was built. The work was made in silence, and the sound of the cleaning process was recorded, this was then played quietly back into the space, filling the room with the continuous and futile sound of cleaning.
