Artist: Kaspar Wimberley

A walk around the perimeters of my ‘Homezone’, an area in which I can make cheaper telephone calls, defined by mobile telephone networks and based on my residential address.

On the course of this journey I have documented what lies directly outside and inside my Homezone, the familiarities and the foreign. I have collected objects, thoughts and images from the people and the places that are encroaching into my territory, or sitting on my doorstep, piecing together a potentially irrational narrative that documents this journey and the way in which we perceive our neighbouring environments; The experience of site as a site of perception.

At times I have been letting the site interfere and inform my own perceptions, at other times I have interfered with the site, initiating a series of interactive interventions that have taken place along this invisible boundary. I have asked pedestrians entering my Homezone if they would like a cup of tea, to take their shoes off or brush their feet on a doormat, I have physically marked out the perimeters of my territory onto the streets and through public spaces using chalked texts or a variety of scents

Homezone has been presented in Stuttgart, at the ISEA 2010 conference in Dortmund, Germany, the Hidden City Festival symposium in Plymouth, England, and the ARENA Festival in Erlangen, Germany.

About

Susanne Kudielka and Kaspar Wimberley work internationally as interventionists and performance researchers specialising in site-specific and site-responsive art, alternative strategies for audience interaction and new forms of artistic collaboration.

The artistic process usually begins with a given site, and a process of observation and dialogue that analyses, and eventually responds, to the architectural, socio-political, geographical, mythological, connotative and historical narratives that can be found there.

Projects are quietly subversive, playfully readjusting the narrative and appreciation of a particular activity or a given site. The working process often involves those that live in an area, and aims to be accessible and relevant.
