Our output, both as plan b and as individual artists, covers a number of different contexts and media. Sophia works with video and video installations and Dan continues his lecture performances and exhibitions of GPS maps. Together, we make installations, work on paper, durational performances, locative media projects, walking and theatre pieces. Works that have been situated in stairwells, airports (this project and this one), hotel bedrooms, shop windows, galleries, city squares, open fields, on bicycles and even in theatres.
We like to stay around, learn about a place, try and respond to the particularity of that place and of ourselves; be honest about our responses and about the fact that we have travelled to get there. Our work is site-specific and relationship-specific. Two faces of the same coin. We either explore the nuances of our own relationship or our relationship to a location or both - a kind of looking inward and outward at the same time. A lot of our pieces rely on something we call 'real time text' (a term that we would like to thank Heike Roms for). This is material that is developed on the spot and either presented to an audience in the moment or recorded and made available through a locative media project or video / audio walk.
