notes on the movement works for derelict buildings

the movement works for derelict buildings exist only on film as documents. in this form they are entirely concerned with physical materials, which is to say their various physical configurations are signifiers of the work.

the movement works for derelict buildings are a fragmentary and insubstantial record of an activity that took place, which is to say the work is not recorded here.

the movement works for derelict buildings are composed of actions, ideas and gestures articulated using objects found in the space. these actions, ideas and gestures were formative, anarchistic, nihilistic, collaborative etc.

these actions, ideas and gestures were spontaneous, intuitive, premeditated, prescribed, based on indeterminate systems - depending how I felt. these buildings were spaces in which I felt comfortable exploring these actions, ideas and gestures.

the movement works for derelict buildings were conceived to be an exercise in invisibility and complete dispersion.

their existence testifies to their failure on both counts.
