On Monday 3 October 2005, Adele Prince and Ellie Harrison
challenged six lucky contestants
to the first
ever game of The Quotidian Factor.
The Quotidian Factor was a game show style creative workshop open to artists
working in all media with a particular interest in quantifying and documenting
objects, events and experiences from everyday life.
Through a series of four diverse challenges
the contestants were put through their paces and encouraged to look to the
smaller things in life for inspiration for their work. The climax of the
workshop saw the presentation of the much sought after Quotidian Factor
for the artist who scored the most points.
This is the first collaborative project between artists Adele
. Both have worked extensively with information collected about
day-to-day life. The workshop was commissioned by ARC
(Artists’ Resource Centre) and held at Aspex
in Portsmouth. This workshop was inspired by some of the themes
from the exhibition Day-to-Day
, curated by Ellie Harrison, which was showing concurrently at Aspex
