All this week, from the 7th-11th November Intelligent Trouble will be making a work at King’s College London as part of the Festival of Making and Materials. Helen Carnac, Katy Hackney, Shane Waltener and David Gates will be working on the impressive main staircase at the river-end of the Strand Campus. The staircase rises through 100 feet and 8 storeys, subtle changes in architectural style, irregular flights, returns and dog-legs all tell something of the way this building was put together over time. We will be weaving, lacing, crossing and dropping jute yarn through the iron, stone and space.
The piece will grow over the week, these images show some initial steps. King’s College is publicly accessible, from the entrance on the Strand walk through the reception and carry on for the whole length of the main corridor, you will find us there between 2.30 and 5.30 each day.
