Many thanks to Alex Greenhough. Instructions for a rearrangement: Take any objects in a social space and rearrange them, in order to alter the perception of that space for subsequent viewers. A marker of human existence. A trace of consciousness. This rearrangement was constructed on Adams Terrace in 2006.

“1998… we were walking along together and moved some stones on a path at Victoria University. I never did finish writing my notes towards a definition…” (Alexander Greenhough, 2010)

Instructions for a rearrangement: Take any objects in a social space and rearrange them, in order to alter the perception of that space for subsequent viewers. A marker of human existence. A trace of consciousness. I think this “rearrangement” took place somewhere near ‘The Mill’ on Victoria Street in Wellington, New Zealand. Thanks to Tao Wells for being there to capture it.

“The ideas need not be complex. Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple. Successful ideas generally have the appearance of simplicity because they seem inevitable.” (Sol LeWitt, Paragraphs On Conceptual Art)

While at the grand opening of Wellington’s newest underground art and music venue The Pyramid Club, Samin Son and myself took some time out to create a few temporary sculptures upstairs, on our way to the toilets. A bunch of great bands played (Ducklingmonster, AudioTears, Warwick and the Wankers, Ooonaverse) and a damn good night was had by all. With so many venues closing in Wellington at the moment, this is exactly what we needed. Check it out people – and make sure to support future Pyramid Club events! See more rearrangements.
