Sounding/Working Papers was a performative sound translation of printed work from Caren Florance’s Reading Spaces exhibition, presented as part of You Are Here Festival 2017. Reuben Ingall treated Working Papers: torrent (Florance/Gardner) as a graphic score, transcribing sections with a computer keyboard, and using the density of printed marks on the page as a guide to the speed of his typing. His homebrewed software treated each key pressed as an instruction to play tones, sample the gallery’s ambience (including typing noises), or remix its own output. This release is an unedited live recording of the performance, made on 8th April 2017 at East Space, Queen Elizabeth Terrace, ACT.
Limited to twenty copies each of three different covers. Art by Caren Florance and words by Angela Gardner from Working Papers: torrent (2015-17). Includes unlimited streaming of Sounding/Working Papers via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Helani Laisk and Jon Webster were the 2011 ANU EASS Ampersand Duck Broadside residents. I tend to write about them together, because they worked in the studio in the same time period, on different days, and they are good friends who went through art school together. However, they are very separate individuals in their art practices and the results of their printing time, despite using some similar processes, are very different and entirely filled with their own personalities.

I try to teach at the Sturt Craft School each year if I can; they have marvellous Summer and Winter Schools where you live-in at the adjoining Frensham School and attend classes every day for a week, so it’s wonderfully intensive.*

Building up a letterpress studio with minimal funds is a slow process that often depends upon luck and opportunity. It’s a lot easier when people are aware that you exist; I get offered type and machines regularly now, but when I first started it was a very different scenario.
I love the moment in a residency (says she, with the wisdom of only two residencies) when you realise that it’s ok, everything will be finished in time. Mind you, with both experiences that realisation came quite late in the piece, but maybe that’s normal. Continue reading
The other day I walked into the Principal’s office (where I’ve been stashing my bag of a day) and she asked me what I’d learned that day. What haven’t I learned! The school’s motto, Together we learn, together we grow, is a philosophy I really support, as any of my adult class participants would tell you. I often learn as much from my students as they learn from me. Continue reading
This is the second week of workshops I was asked to present as an addendum to the main postcard project. Continue reading
