Scott Mason


Since 2012, Scott Mason has been sonically documenting exhibitions in public galleries and artist-run spaces. These recordings form a unique document of the relationship between architecture and objects. Taking these recordings as objects themselves, the recordings are mixed, layered and conflated, facilitating the potential of exhibitions to become objects that can be curated, and exploring our engagement with the exhibition context.


This book accompanies our September 2014 Video Space programme; a special hour-long pre-recorded DJ mix containing over 25+ recordings from around the country. Acting in conjunction with the mix, the publication features eleven fictional responses to the sonic documentation, commissioned from the following artists, writers, and curators:


  • V. Allen
  • Harry Burke
  • Ami Clarke
  • Chris Fite-Wassilak
  • John Hill
  • Elizabeth Holdsworth
  • Chris Kraus
  • Marti Manen
  • Rasmus Nilausen
  • Lisa Radon
  • Holly Stevenson
