This is the first minute of a new collaboration between sound artist Monica Brooks [ soundcloud.com/monica_brooks ] and visual artist Peter Nelson [ peteracnelson.com ] . The artists have used two imaginary characters – The Warrior (Brooks) and The Surveyor (Nelson) to communicate with each other between separate countries, and to redefine the imaginary world of Extensions of a No-Place.
Shortly before Nelson left for Taiwan, sitting together on a sandstone boulder encrusted with oyster shells and dehydrated algae, Brooks revealed her invasion of Extensions of a No-Place – and the first hand-written story of The Warrior was pushed into his hand. Her new apparition had wandered to the top of a mountain peak and was peering down at one of Nelson’s ghosts – The Surveyor. This man was striding purposefully throughout the gleaming gridded white expanse, irrationally trying to measure objects that have no dimensions.
