Reason Most Absurd – Up The Wall Festival, Chester


Reason Most Absurd

Installation with multi-channel sound

An unsettling and atmospheric audiovisual meditation on being driven ‘up the wall’, through the lens of Shakespeare’s depictions of insanity.  From Hamlet’s enigmatic ramblings on the ramparts, to Lady Macbeth sleepwalking the castle, Shakespeare’s ‘madness’ is a dichotomy, not merely a loss of control but often a symbol of maverick action in a disturbed world.

Reason Most Absurd was created in collaboration with visual artist Jessica Mautner and was produced for the Up The Wall festival 2010 which took place over two evenings in and around the Roman Chester Gardens. More information:
