Stabilisers explores tensions between permanency and flux, stability and instability through the installation of large industrial structures. In the gallery space, a braced, industrial composition transitions from an inanimate structure to a physical, material, even anthropomorphic entity. In contrast, Transitioning (by Cara-Ann Simpson) explores movement, tension and the changing states of energy to build a state of unease. Using manipulated field recordings from urban, industrial locations, Transitioning reveals the constant fluctuating rhythms that society has invented and drawn around itself since the Industrial Revolution.
