Ground Control - Beaconsfield GalleryA collaborative project with artist-run space Jutempus in Vilnius and the Baltic Flour Mills in Gateshead, manifesting in exhibitions in London and Vilnius, a book, a web site and symposium. Artists projects focused upon the relationship between ‘East’ and ‘West’ Europe through their experiences as visitors, exploring the implications of travel and global communication and the potential of the artist as commentator and contemporary seer. Fiona Banner, Ceponyte & Ozarinscas, Lucy Gunning, Evaldas Jansas, Linas Liandzbergis, David Mollin, Deimantas Narkevicius, Aturas Raila with Darius Cuita, Scanner, Thomson & Craighead.

As part of an exchange programme of artists from Lithuania and London, I created a soundscape for the show composed from location recordings and scanned voices from Vilnius which was then broadcast throughout the London exposition.
