Calling all students to contribute ideas about revolution

All students are invited to contribute ideas about revolution for an art installation by Suki Chan called A Hundred Seas Rising.

Suki explains ‘I am creating an art installation that is about how people imagine revolution and I am asking students to participate. Your voices (only) will be used as part of the installation – which will be exhibited at Aspex Gallery in May to July 2012.

Interested students will be invited to a sound recording at the University where they will be asked to describe their own modern day revolution. This might be personal, social, cultural, philosophical, technological, as well as political revolution. I am seeking a range of ideas from small personal revolutions that improve the daily life of one person, to ambitious ideas attempting to solve recurrent social ills, such as housing, distribution of money, debt, social welfare, education, the prison system, and so on.

What would you like to change?

Recording sessions will take place between October and November 2011. Place and time to be confirmed. Each contributor will be recorded individually and each session will last maximum 30 minutes.

Participants will be credited as contributors to the project and will receive invites to the exhibition.
