During a very enaging discussion with Siobahn and Tania, they touched on a piece of work I was interesed to hear more about called ‘rotor’ in which the central theme was ‘catalyst’ for one person/thing to affect another during moving around each other in a space. Artists and poets were invited to come and be a part of the work as a n additional catalyst to inspire ideas from the work.
