An installation of drawing instruments animated by sound, Out of Hand is a collaboration between sound artist, Tom Allum, and Architect, Beth George.
Over the duration of the exhibition, Allum and George will be working with mark-making machines to amass a body of work toward a closing event.
Walking, clashing, entangling, shuddering, looping, and dancing to a vibrational sound score, the implements, made of everyday componentry and found objects, are hypnotic to watch. Like wayward creatures, they are undisciplined.
The machines are not autonomous — while the artists remain at arm’s length from the drawings, both sound inputs and physical infrastructures require recurrent tuning in an unwieldy choreography of senses, bodies and media.
On now until 28 January.
At Old Customs House, 8 Phillimore Street, Walyalup/Fremantle. Special event Jan 26th from 6pm
