Lambeth Open
Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October

I’m taking part in Lambeth Open Studios this weekend. I’ll be in situ from 10am to 6pm on both days, along with other artists at ASC studios in Brixton Village and beyond (36 venues and over 100 artists and crafts people in Lambeth).

My studio is 14b, 5th Avenue, Brixton Village Studios, Granville Arcade, Brixton SW9 8PS

This is how I’ve described myself for the event:

Tim Shore works with moving image, drawing (of sorts) and installation. He likes cardboard, packaging and model making but does very little of the latter. He collects sketchbooks and different notebooks and tends not to use them. He is attempting to draw again, but is nervous about working without a ruler and so he’s mainly drawing lines, grids, charts, and lines that cross over other lines. He worries about what his work should be about, likes history and is fascinated by the Luddite Uprising of 1812/13. It’s a long time ago, marginal, and he is aware that its legacy is troubled with misunderstanding, negativity and accusations of irrelevance. He recently did a short and very intensive hand weaving course and wonders how Luddites, weaving, lines and computers might all be bound together.

Homfirth Arts Festival 2012

Here’s a link to the Facebook event page for Writing Frame:

Homfirth Arts Festival 2012

The Nook Brewhouse, Holmfirth has specially brewed two festival beers, Twisted In and Sedition. I’ve designed the pump label image for Twisted In (a light ale, 4.0%). Both beers are being served as a draught at the Towser Bothy, Carniceira and the Nook during the festival.

Homfirth Arts Festival 2012

Writing Frame is an installation for this year’s Holmfirth Arts Festival.

It’s in response to a call for works that respond to the 200th anniversary of the the Luddite uprising. Writing Frame is a series of linked A1 ‘cards’ that cascades off a simple wooden frame. Punched into the paper is a continuous text that appears to ‘run on’ and reads:

‘Enoch hath made them and Enoch shall break them.’

Enoch was the name given to the iron sledgehammers used by the Luddites to smash the frames which were also made by the same Enoch Taylor of Marsden. I was going to get the paper laser cut but it cost too much and so instead I’ve used a dot matrix font as a template, drawing and cutting out the letter forms myself by hand.
