This body of work includes 14 wooden squeezebox structures to make a variable dimension installation in the show spaces. Artist Jasmin Aldridge and I collaborated to make a unique Butoh-inspired performance working with the sculptural forms during the exhibition. I also showed screenprints that suggested that the mythical Dreaming Robot Tortoises (DRTs) were transformed into squeezebox shapes and also absent from the physical space.
