‘To make the stone stoney’ is a series of interactive discussions events related to the long-term research partnership between artist Nicola Singh and architect Tim Bailey at xsite architecture, commissioned by Wunderbar.
Curated under a collection of themes by Nicola Singh, the events aim to generate discussion that reflects upon and challenges the archive of work created through this partnership and which also looks to future collaborations.
Each event will include an introduction to the work, group discussion and a short exercise that aims to further explore the value of thinking with and through movement and sound in relation to the built environment.
