RESEARCH RESIDENCY & PUBLIC PROJECT:

Stereochron Island re-imagines Victoria Park as a tiny fictional territory campaigning to become a State Without Clocks. The Island has invited specialists to lead a public investigation of its rare habitats of time so that we can protect and celebrate them better.

I created this project in collaboration with expert investigators and members of the public in my role as artist in residence in Victoria Park, London, for Chisenhale Gallery (2013-14).

As Campaign Secretary I made the blog Stereochron.org (pictured below) as a way of bringing together our field studies and experiments in one place and widening the audience for our campaign.
