The Not Knowing of Another

This new multi-screen video and sound installation provides synchronized, but alternative viewpoints of a short walk navigated by a man with complex neurological impairment. The artist has retrieved the sound of the man's heartbeat and breathing along with video footage from the jouney via several cameras - one attached to his chest, an aerial view camera, a camera that follows the direction of his gaze and another that provides an overview of the walk. From hearing the intimate micro-rhythms of blood pumping through the heart, to seeing a rrid's eye view of the space in which the jouney is made, the viewer is allowed to engage in the walk in a way that attempts to gain insight into the man's complex and (to us) unknown world.

NESTA award-winning artist Kate Adams has undertaken significant development work with people who have complex needs, focusing on gaining an insight into their experiences of the buillt enviroment. This has developed a longside an interest in the philosophy of phenomenology - described as the reflective study of the essence of consciousness as experienced from the first-person point of view.

Kate Adams lives in Hastings and is co-founder and director of Project ArtWorks.
