The Weak Force is an international collaboration between artists Matthew Sansom (UK), Andy Thomson (NZ), Paul Cullen (NZ), Chris Braddock (NZ), Eugene Hansen (NZ), Laresa Ksoloff (Aus), Bruce Barber (Canada), and Kim Morgan (Can). It is part of 'Unified Field Theory', a larger arts research project based at Auckland University of Technology. Visit this multimedia artwork to explore connections between gravitational theory, the 100th anniversary of Luigi Russolo’s manifesto The 'Art of Noises', and questions about how and why artists work together. March 12 - March 28, 2013. Lewis Elton Gallery, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. This is the fifth collaborative project associated with the UFT (Unified Field Theory) which is an Aukland University of Technology (NZ) Art Research project. The aim of the project is to locate and represent the social and relational as the internal generative dynamic of a collaborative creative work. UFT is an international collaborative arts project that explores how artists work together and why? It examines to what extent an idea is separable from its specific material expression? And what latitude is possible for its material expression (and presentation) to constitute an authentic expression of the idea? Through collaboration with others it is hoped to make palpable the exchange between cultures and its representations - where up and down, east and west, before and after, distance, proximity, language, matter, interpretation and perception are all means and measures of negotiating a relationship to gravity's space-time. Other UFT collaborative initiatives have included commissions for the Horsham Art Festival New#2 Australian Centre for Contemporary Art 2011 curated by Hannah Mathews, The Green Text Glasgow International Art Festival 2012 curated by Kitty Anderson (Common Guild), The Weak Force1 Anna Leowen’s Gallery (Nova Scotia Canada) 2012, Tower Theory Conical Gallery Melbourne 2012 curated by Adrien Allen. The UFT project is without cultural borders and occupies a research field encompassing the globe and infinite possibilities of contemporary practice.
