we have decided on a title for our residency.
the quality of being nothing:
a three week residency exploring the point at which something comes into being.
the title is literally the dictionary definition of nothingness.
it relates to the genesis theme of the synapse festival. genesis is 'the coming into being of something'
it reflects the sense of emptiness in the empty shop, whilst acknowledging the fact that by being empty it is providing us with the opportunity to carry out this project.
the blank paper from which we will be working will give us the opportunity to explore this theme.
