Locus Non Consequensia or ‘Location of no consequence’ is a project that began in the early 2000’s and existed only as a concept and a collection of drawings.
This year, I decided to revive the idea as now with the prominence of social media, it felt the perfect fit for a project which relies on engagement and input from right across the social spectrum.
Locus Non Consequensia is a project designed to honour all places which have no apparent aesthetic or utilitarian value and to consider these places through one representative square metre of ground which has been randomly chosen using Google Earth and a Random Number Generator.
We live at a time in history where the need to reflect on the fundamental physical reality around us has never been more important.
On Saturday, 9th September at 2.30pm, as part of the Manly Arts Festival, Manly Art Gallery and Museum will kindly be hosting the inaugural Locus Non Consequensia ‘dedication’ and what we hope will be the first of an on-going and global project.
Established and emerging actors, performers, poets and singers of any age will respond individually to the theme ‘inconsequential spaces’.
We’re asking the general public to be part of the launch by coming and watching the performances and to ‘witness’ the event and to sign the ‘book of witness’ which will be in the Manly Art Gallery reception.
We’re also asking people to hashtag #locusprojectselfie at the Locus frame during the festival, to share their experiences.
Below is a short video explaining the Locus Non Consequensia concept.
Please contact me if you have any questions or queries and I also invite you to join us on social media to stay in touch with the ‘Locus’ project.
