Revolve:R, edition three
Continuing the thematic development of editions one (2013) and two (2015) - initially inspired by concepts of chance and synchronicity - in Summer 2017, Sam Treadaway sent an artwork, by post, to a number of other artists with the invitation to respond with an artwork of their own. Once all these artworks were received, a new work was then created, both a synthesis, edit and 'answer' to the collective works, which was once again sent to all participating artists. Each Revolve:R project and bookwork consists of six such rounds, referred to as 'Revolves', of this process of communication.
As with the edition two, for Revolve:R, edition three poets were invited to write poems in response to the collective visual artworks of each of the six Revolves. These poems were then sent to filmmakers who were each invited to make short films in reply to one of the six poems. As a development within edition three each of these six poems was also forwarded to another poet, who wrote a poem in reply sound artists and musicians were invited to create a sound-work or song inspired by the collective visual artworks of each Revolve.
Revolve:R, edition three is reaching completion in the coming months and is due to be published in 2018. We are now inviting your support of this publication by pre-ordering the edition three bookwork which will be the result of a two-year long collaboration involving artists working collaboratively across a wide range of media including: visual art, poetry, film, sound art and music.
