Last week, Cleveland’s contemporary art venue, SPACES released a video we made for them! Back in November we got a chance to film this video interview with James Webb who is completing a residency at SPACES and his project that he worked on, It’s Not What It Looks Like: An audio guide to getting lost.
“The voice and language-with their powers to beguile, persuade and disorientate, as well as their use in reframing objects and situations-are key to the artist's current investigations. Towards these themes, Webb will conduct interviews with Clevelanders and undergo what French philosopher Guy Debord might call dérive-like walking tours. His focused wandering, amusement, and disorientation in Cleveland will progress towards various artworks that could act as associative audio guides to his experience and findings.”
