Back in October there will be a blog Walking Tour about a walk around Tunbridge Wells common as part of the Grosvenor Rocks project. The walk finished at Tunbridge Wells Forum, which is situated where one of the original houses pre-The Wells was. Polly and Suzie were part of commissioning Grosvenor Rocks, and in October they told me about a new project that was underway – Hoodwink. Hoodwink have been sharing bits and pieces on facebook and twitter ever since, and their links to The Forum….little hints of what’s going on.
Today, in the glorious sunshine, the work that is Profound Riches sits shining on The Forum roof, and when band Mallory Knox start playing tonight, sounds from inside will activate the lights on Profound Riches. Also inside, sounds will be recorded and can be heard on the internet radio, and you can contribute through the telephone boxes inside… plus the previous day’s radio should be heard at the Museum, where there is a model of the project. Finally – there is a good, old time fanzine, including an interview with the artist Jonathan Wright . The artwork will be up for six months, including during unfest (May 24-26) where Hoodwink are giving away a recording day at UnStudio in The Forum.
