Photographic meanderings with accompanying prose mullings by Marcia Farquhar, Andrew Kötting and Dr Robert Pepperell. Inspired by a road trip around the South and North Islands of New Zealand in a camper van during the winter of 2019. All photographs taken on an iphone with a John Smith lens and Kodöt film stock. The limited edition bookwork includes a 7" 45 RPM vinyl of field recordings also using an iphone but remixed by David Bloor in the winter of 2021.
David Bloor / Dirch Blewn
Dirch Blewn resides in the playful, the exploration. He has adopted a focussed, experimental approach using bent electronics, homemade strings, ciat lonbarde instruments, 1/4' tape manipulations & effects pedals.
Miltonic Quantum Tripping
“Beautifully balanced between effortlessly charmed pictorial seizures (and locations) and the chewed-out combative flights of text, philosophies, poetries, puns, membrances, stutters and sidesteps. All fall down. The apocalypse as a silent screen comedy scripted by John Milton. It was stern and biblical too. And tragically of its time in solemn undertow. So far in a few pages. These books are building (or breeding) across a shelf. That's what we need now, the independence. The get-it-done”.

A thing of wonder and blunder: Andrew Kötting, whose singular films include Gallivant, This Filthy Earth and By Our Selves, has a new bookwork out - Quantum Shenanigans & Gravitational To-Dos Downyonder in a Place of Energy & Wonder. Loosely based on a camper van trip around New Zealand in 2019, it’s an exercise in mad travel, in wrestling with finitude, endlessly sad and funny and strange. It’s a photo-text meditation on falling, randomness, blue skies, on what he calls ‘quantum entanglement’. It features - and sometimes disappears - his artist daughter Eden in a way that reminds me of the cover of Throbbing Gristle’s 20 Jazz Funk Greats.
