The Externalisation of consciousness in a living space, soho square ten floor FA HQ office block project

At very short notice a group of artists made their presense known in what was the Football Assosciation HQ in Soho Square. The building was to be gutted, and so we were given free reign to use the space for a night time art event last thursday 4th november 2010. Visitors kept arriving to see what was going on in the enormous and empty ten floor office block, getting a unique chance to explore ten floors of installations, interventions, projections and live art. There was a bar serving free booze, only i'm not sure just how repellant the visitors expected it to be (it was deliberately terrifying, with beer and wine served from water coolers, and loud annoying sounds and blindling lights). Guests gathered on the seventh floor terrace to trace their foot steps over a giant mozaic and admire the view over Centre Point.

My installation was on floor three, alongside the primal scream sound-proofed screaming box. For two days prior to the event i had been busying externalising my consciousness onto the fabric of a room, and was there performing the very same activity on the night as guests looked on.
