Happi with an I: Part 1 - Co(lapse), 2020 by StudioThreePointFour
'Happi with an I' is a long term project by Norwich based artists, Alec game and Tom Little. Working under the collective name of Studio 3.4, Part 1 - Co(lapse), documents their exploration of, and developing relationship to, a cliff on the Norfolk coast.
Part 1 was realised as an installation at Outpost Gallery. Norwich. The installation centred around two films and consisted of large scale photographs and a sound piece. The principal film is inspired by scientific methods of exploring and understanding environments through numbers and measurements, the two artists perform a seemingly ritualistic series of land measurements using a surveyor’s tape. The ultimately uninformative measurements talk broadly about the attempts made to understand nature through numerical material when there is a failure to comprehend our place and relationship to our natural environment. The film also touches on ideas around labour, futility and identity through its use of clothing and repetitive actions.
