This blog collates collaborative ideas, thoughts and processes generated by visual artists, Steven Anderson and Kirsty Stansfield. We have been working together since 2009 and share an interest in site-specificity, performance practice and theory, and in collaborating with non-artists.

Day 3, text / voice and image, Research & Development, Phase 2, Neonatal Project
We experimented speaking the words of the cut up texts made from the transcriptions of interview material with parents. Photographs taken by ourselves while in residence in the neonatal unit were used as a backdrop for the voice, opening up interesting juxtapositions and new meaning from the material.
A link to an audio file of Kirsty speaking one of the Parent's cut-ups can be heard here.
Here are some still images with examples of the cut up texts.
