Site-integrity: a dynamic exchange between site, artist, device and audience

Julie Marsh

Site-integrity is a proposal for a working methodology - a particular but original mode of site-specific practice that potentiates a dynamic exchange between site, artist, device and audience.  Non-haptic, non-temporal ways of representing place have come to dominate contemporary practice. When site is reduced to representation, the experiential qualities are lost. Site-integrity repositions the act of representation from its retrospective or projective dimensions towards that which is performed and is experiential. This exposition presents three specific projects; Assembly, Moving site/sight and Screen space that explore temporal relations with space and place via motorised recording/display devices. These projects are examples of artistic devices that contributes (not exclusively) to a specific practice - site-integrity.
