Steve Thorpe Paul Ramsay
Works of Friction
Paul Ramsay and Steve Thorpe are both fascinated by the process of what happens when stones are eroded. However, they are both paying attention to two very different aspects: Steve Thorpe is interested in the transformation of matter from solid to powder (slow in human terms, but a kind of speeded-up weathering) while Paul Ramsay is drawn to the sounds that emanate as one material rubs against another (the product of friction between inert materials that are yet full of emotive, human resonance).

This show comprised Steve Thorpe's 'Rock Works' created from materials from specific sites and Paul Ramsay’s sound installation 'Frictional Account' derived from recordings of stones activated through being ground together. Notation, documentation and speculative/collaborative visual pieces were also on display.
