Dear Alan, Thanks for setting this task to rehearse or workshop a theme from my ‘section’ of a possible joint performance. It became a really enjoyable task to do after a day or two of having no clue how to begin resolving it! Your task specified no theme or practice...

Dear Marie, In Task 20, you require me to be precise as possible in showing/explaining my choices. Quite right, too. A film by Jean-Luc Godard once proposed that: Il faut confronter des idées vagues avec des images claires. But… but… —what if the images are no damn help either? Love, Alan...

Dear Alan Thanks for your appreciative words about the film I put together for the review conversation. I’m annoyed with all the little flaws that it has (synch problems, inattentive framing etc) but as you said it was made in a busy week. And yes, I also feel the parameters...

Part 1 (Sunday afternoon/evening) Dear Marie, It’s been a busy week, with two presentations to deliver, a big deadline and several meetings. As a result, this response is less developed than usual – though maybe that’s not a bad or, at least, not an inappropriate thing. The task required that...

Dear Alan, Thanks for the conversation that the film is documenting and for this task, which was an opportunity to listen back to the dialogue and work with the material. Thanks also to friend and collaborator Mette Terp Høybye for chairing and facilitating the dialogue! It felt like a big...

Dear Alan, Thanks for the task to make five drawings of Stensballe, Horsens, Jutland, Denmark, Nation as such. I enjoyed the simplicity of this task while I still found that it generated some complexity in my ideas about the boundaries and definitions of ‘home’ and ‘nation’. It also became an...

Dear Marie, This task was hard. M:I It was hard partly because of the quantity and range of footage provided. It seemed a mission impossible to shrink and combine it in a five-minute film. It took me a long time to establish the parameters that could shape the material. It...

Dear Alan, Thanks for this task to record the in-between part of my journeys between Horsens and Aarhus. I have made some video material, some audio recordings during the car trips and a single drawing from listening to SatNav guidance for the journey. At a first glance what strikes me...

Dear Marie, Thanks for the ‘psychogeographical’ Task 12. You asked me to chose an unfamiliar area and spend at least an hour wandering through it. My friend Erin Pickles was visiting us for a few days so I asked her to join me in the scripted meander. I decided to...
