#olufsenandi #lettherightonein a multi-species study on teachers, medicine and iatrogenesis.

A reflection on care and self-care that documents Jones’ experience of cohabitation with a free-roaming nocturnal Katydid during a time of extraordinary illness and parisitosis.

Comprising a tiny three channel video installation installed in the inkwells of old school desks. Each video loop documents the daily rituals of olufsen appearing and disappearing into darkness along with their elusive stridulations. Accompanied by a tiny fold out zine Habits of a Katydid or Rituals of Mind (after Allard 1928) with seven micro chapters on Hunger, Thirst, Cleanliness, Rest, Metaphysics, Freedom and a colour Katydid mandala overleaf.

#olufsenandi #lettherightonein premiere’s as part of DUST, an exhibition on insects, collections and care, curated by Jacqueline Spedding, at Woodford Academy, National Trust heritage museum, Blue Mountains, September- November 2018.
