On Sunday, November 17th, TICKBIRD&RHINO hosted a roundtable discussion with Foster Spragge and twenty participants who took part in the exhibition, Somewhere In-Between.
Somewhere In-Between is a unique, interactive collaboration curated by Foster that links 50 books with 48 artworks and 44 libraries. The project brings together work from artists to architects, curators to comedy writers and poets to performers, all responding to a selection of books chosen by librarians, each making a suggestion based on another librarian's previously selected book. This chain reaction created an ever-expanding network of associations with fascinating results.
Our roundtable was an opportunity to learn about the origins of the project, how it developed and the experiences of the participants, librarians and publishers as it unfolded over time.

JOCKEL & ZISIS are back!
On Wednesday evening, October 23rd we brought you the first results in EPHEMERAL TRANSFORMATIONS, the ongoing collaboration between the artist JOCKEL LIESS and virologist DR ZISIS KOZLAKIDIS.
It was a fantastic evening in the evocative surroundings of Bloomsbury's Horse Hospital where we listened to Jockel's interpretation of the H1N1 Flu virus and then had a wide ranging conversation exploring how he transformed its genetic data into sound.
Jockel & Zisis also talked about the progress of their work over the last 18 months and answered questions about the projects applications and where it might lead in the future.
At TICKBIRD&RHINO we think there’s nothing better than hanging out with fascinating people, talking about interesting things and, much like the introduction of Ephemeral Transformations that started it all, this evening was just as inspiring and full of great conversation.
Dr Zisis Kozlakidis is Head of Laboratory and Biobanking at the International Agency for Research on Cancer / WHO (World Health Organisation). He is also a virologist and Innovation Fellow at UCL working on the front-line of diseases outbreaks around the world.
Jockel Liess is an audiovisual artist and composer specialising in live-generative audiovisual systems that create abstract, meditative environments.
