Geometric Images (2012)

Installation,lathe cut 12" record, record player.



I recorded some exercises from a book "Geometric Images" that I found in a charity shop about fostering mathematical imagination in school children through a series of spoken instructions. The listener is to perform a series of transformations on mental images of geometric shapes.

Part of Network Music Festival and installed at The Lombard Method.

"Network Music Festival have invited Samuel Rodgers to curate an exhibition of installation work as part of this year’s festival. Taking the notion of networking as a point of departure, invited artists Steven Dickie and Pete McPartlan have made new works encompassing video, sound and object that explore the nature of the singular within a mass and the transmission and exchange of abstract thought."
