Day-to-Day Data
The exhibition at Aspex Gallery featured the six original commissions from Angel Row Gallery alongside two new works. The collaboration with SCAN meant the Day-to-Day Data was able to preview new works by Hywel Davies and James Coupe, Hedley Roberts & Rob Saunders, which were the result of a year long period of research and development.

The exhibition had a very different look and feel to the Angel Row Gallery show. This was a result of the entire show being contained within one room instead of two and the added soundtrack from Hywel’s installation.

This event was the official launch of the Gallery Exhibition at Aspex Gallery. It was also an opportunity for Sam Curtis to continue his quest to single-handedly count all the people in the UK for his ongoing performance IDUK. The exhibition was launched with a speech by Aspex Gallery director Joanne Bushnell, which also celebrated former Exhibitions & Marketing Co-ordinator, Susie Clark’s last day at work.

Bio Mapping

Ongoing throughout the exhibition

Three of Christian Nold’s Bio Mapping devices were available for Aspex Gallery visitors to borrow for the duration of the Day-to-Day Data exhibition. Once kitted out with the device, visitors went for a 40 minute walk around the local area. On returning, gallery assistants used Christian’s software to transform the data collected into personal Bio Maps, which were then shown on the gallery show reel.

The Quotidian Factor

Monday 3 October, 2 – 5pm

This was a creative workshop devised by Adele Prince and Ellie Harrison. It was 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 activities artists were put through their paces and encouraged to look to the smaller things in life for inspiration for their work. This event was organised by the Artists’ Resource Centre (ARC).
