Back of the Day
Sound Thought 2017
—Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow 




Back of the Day presents a diptych video and single sound installation translating current reflections on experiences of place, transit, time, and perspective.

A collaboration with sound artist and muscian Murray Collier and formed simultaneously over two locations; Australia and Scotland by each artist.

The films centres on the artists maintaining common points of reference in different environments, and the maintaining in contact with loved ones over a long distance, and across time zones. Representing two sides of a conversation, a communication between two wholly different environments.  

Presented as part of Sound Thought 2017.

To Be Continued... 
Glasgow School of Art 
—The Tontine Building, Glasgow 

It began with a casual call out to come and participate in passing on messages. Over two locations we performed the act of the game which can be known as Russian scandal, whisper down the lane, broken telephone, operator, grapevine, the messenger and/or chinese whispers.

‘To Be Continued...’ (2016) became a portrait of the members of the Glasgow School of Art, contemporary artists, makers, friends and peers playing the game.

The installation was composed of a quadrophinic sound installation, syncronished multi-channel video, two semi 18 ply hand built circlular benches  and 250 A3 gloss coated posters.

'I Open Sometime' is a collaboration between artists Hannan Jones and Rachael Simpson, together with The Savoy Centre.

The collaboration advocates an open and ongoing conversation about publicly engaged contemporary art today, allowing a reflection upon community and social functions.

At the heart of 'I Open Sometime' is language, inspired by introductions, connections, advice, stories and receptions. The work embraces conversation as art and utilises accessible materials such as video and sonic installations, text based works and playfully re-imagined everyday objects.
