    As part of Steal From Work’s collaboration with ‘Street Art Dealer’, Bristol based artists Joseph Watts and Haywood Slucutt were commissioned to create a spacious work of art that would subsequently be made into high quality giclée prints, accessible to the general public via QR code technology. Their response was imaginative, ambitious and challenging.

    Situated in the context of a disused shop in central Broadmead, the sculptural installation simulates an architectural collapse, resembling the remains of a mutated ‘accident’. Initially designed as a virtual 3D model, the sculpture was then realised in wood, piece by piece as a massive and complex puzzle. The accentuated, whitewashed forms, in the shape of I beam girders are structurally merged and entangled, as if the supporting walls and floor were liquefied for an instant and then frozen in a hyper-realized moment.

    This mesh of girders becomes a 3 dimensional backdrop for a 2 dimensional painted image that can be clearly distinguished from a single point in the room. It reads ‘MEANWHILE BACKSTAGE…’ Starting from a consideration of the IMMERSIVE experience of Bristol’s central shopping district, the choice of words is meant as a provocative response to, and reversal of Cabot Circus’ main advertising slogan -the affirmative and directive: ‘TAKE CENTRE STAGE’. These theatrical connotations and more are elaborated in an accompanying text; a critical ‘meta-fiction’ developed in collaboration with artist and writer Owen Hart.

    A further collaboration with internationally renowned light projection artists ANTIVJ and sound artist Damien Schneider has resulted in an immersive augmentation of the installation. Using innovative 3D mapping software the artists have delineated the fractured mass of geometric forms of BEAM, onto which digital textures and sounds will be projected.

  3. As our final exam at Blekinge Institute of Technology we decided to make a short film. We built the team and spent the next five months, isolated from reality, making it all happen. It turned out to be an even more challenging and large-scale journey than we could ever imagine. It was the longest film we had ever done, 28 minutes, and we had a very limited budget of $1000 to work with.

  4. An event called "Art in the Dark" which featured artists, musicians, performers, spoken word....and whatever else we decided to throw in the mix that night. It's more of an "experience" than anything else. All gathering for a night of art, music, laughter, epic duels, and hey......Who am I kidding, a drink or four ;)
