Developed originally from a commission awarded to Poulomi Desai by Gary Stewart of the Institute of International Visual Arts (INIVA), this new artwork is a collaboration between Poulomi Desai (Usurp) and Disinformation inspired by their project entitled “London Underground” that was exhibited in 2009 at Rivington Place, London as part of “Liminal”. The oscilloscope visualisations featured in this video render the sound from the audio-track of the video exhibited by INIVA. See: http://youtu.be/YoVrd7aM8cI
In 2008, a new version combining VLF recordings with simultaneous video was conceived and proposed by Poulomi Desai of Usurp, and made en-route to the Dislocate exhibition at Souzouzukan 9001 in Yokohama (thanks to Emma Ota). In 2009 further VLF + video versions were commissioned by Pixel Palace for exhibition at Tyneside Cinema (thanks to Ed Carter), and a VLF + video version of “London Underground” was commissioned by INIVA for exhibition at Rivington Place. The original VLF + video versions of this concept are also published and documented on You Tube. The Wire magazine described “London Underground” and “Bexleyheath to Dartford” as “fascinating… like electron microscope images”.
