Benjamin Skinner: ‘Archive of Experience’

For his commission in response to the Borough Road Gallery exhibition, The Elemental Force of Charcoal, Benjamin Skinner mapped the trajectories of gallery visitors and made ‘field notes’ on the inhabited exhibition space in this series of drawings. Skinner then improvised a score of movement based on each drawing, following its completion. Over the course of the hour, this ‘archive of experience’ was built up, with Skinner exploring the capacity for it to be embodied.
