Abstract or Description
For Nought to Sixty Fusco has developed SPUME, a series of texts that are broadcast daily, via Bluetooth, to the mobile phones of ICA visitors. Texts are changed each week until the end of Nought to Sixty. Expanding on a previous piece, Doom Knots (2006), the artist is generating a barrage of texts that will be broadcast daily, by Bluetooth, to mobile phones passing within range of her transmitter. The piece, which is based at the ICA, is characterised by a fragmentation of narrative, and it would be very hard for any one individual to experience the entirety of this work. However, its engagement with narrative as a physical but metamorphic object is typical of Fusco – and one of the things has lent her work to an art context.
