roundtable roundabout employs methods of montage to cut, move, insert, layer and combine objects, sites and situations as fragments to create new hybrid circumstances, with new social conditions. The project combines the site of a ‘roundtable’ with that of a ‘roundabout' to question systems of navigation, negotiation and regulation within the urban environment and reflect on the dichotomy between top-down round table politics and bottom-up revolutionary political action.
The project combines experiments in text and image with live interventions at the site of a roundabout. Through a process of disruption and disassembly, systematic arrangements and social conditions are displaced from each situation to create alternate relations, positions and meanings. The process and subsequent fragmentary forms present a dialectical exploration of the opposing systems and expose the conflicting or conferring conditions and logics at play.
