Listening to Strangers presented artworks made by borrowing strangers’ workspaces, tools and materials. By inhabiting a stranger’s workplace the practice of the absent maker becomes embodied in an artwork made with whatever is to hand.

This spoken word and moving image performance for an audience of thirteen brought together three short pieces: 7 Strangers, 5 Studies of Practice and Practicing. Observations of strangers were combined with studies of ‘nested’ practice to evoke a creative process which is relational rather than original.

Listening to Strangers was subsequently performed for the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam on 16 February 2016.
