VOICEBOX

Voice Box was a live audio installation created inside the SHOWstudio premises over the festive period by the SHOWstudio viewer base. Reliant upon audience participation for its success, the project asked viewers to make a voice or sound recording via telephone which was then ‘tied’ to the time it was submitted and repeated at that time each day from 23 December 2005—3 January 2006. This gradually produced a collaborative, time-based sound work. The project started as a ‘blank sheet’ on the Friday the SHOWstudio team broke for Christmas and built up as viewers’ voices started to fill the void of the repeating, one-day timeframe. The piece played simultaneously inside the empty studio and as well as being broadcast from the SHOWstudio website.

LYRIC

Twelve leading creatives from the fields of fashion, music and image-making have come together to produce eight distinct projects under the mantle of 'Lyric', an umbrella project that pioneers creative ground using the latest 'third generation' mobile-imaging technologies. Each contributor, or creative pairing was issued with a 'Motorola' handset with video call facility on '3's video mobile network, and asked to make a series of short films or 'motion clips' that visually interpret the song lyrics of their choice - producing one clip for each lyric line.

The contributors have produced a clip for each lyric line, and each lyric and clip is released one by one over a month-long period, gradually revealing the visual interpretations of each maker in numerous audacious, provocative outcomes On completion, each song sequence imparts a sense of the personality of the practitioners.

The concept was Nick Knight's but I was involved in the implementation of the videos as well as working with the artists in various capacities such as selection and editing.

PSP AMAZE ME

AMAZE ME is inspired by the brief issued by art director Alexi Brodovitch to photographer Richard Avedon — simply to “amaze him”.
The challenge asked you, the public, to respond to a brief set by a panel of six leading creative industry figures in six different territories. The interactive booths were installed in London, Antwerp, Rome, Dublin, Barcelona and Berlin. Entrants came to one of our micro-studio booths and made a 30 second video pitch. The best six entrants won a PSP™(Playstation®Portable), plus an exclusive opportunity to work with the panellist they attempted to amaze.

FRAGMENTS OF ME

Watch what happens when a model that is used to being directed takes control of her representation. Each day, Liberty Ross sends in three video clips of the three sections of her body that make up a full-length portrait, which will be fed into this random generator. Using the arrows, flick through the layers to discover the myriad of self-authored looks beneath and see what models get up to when there are no stylists, creative directors or photographers around to intervene!

MODELCARDS

An interactive casting booth that asked the questions that are normally written on a models card but in this case are filmed and uploaded automatically to SHOWstudio. After entering the booth and stating their name, the models are then asked questions about their agency, their physical appearance and then finally, where they are heading to next.
