until my pencil runs out
small bang

Part of a body of work on the accumulation and dispersal of human actions, themes of the absurd, randomness and repetition recur throughout 'small bang' and 'until my pencil runs out'. Reed's performances highlight the residues and remnants of the event; often, small particles from everyday materials are distributed, expanded, exploded or sucked away. Her influences vary widely and here they range from comedy to cosmology to mapping.
Concerned with contrasting different aspects of production including film, performance and light and it's effects the works coincide in contrasting the materiality of actual, depicted and used objects with the materiality of the forms of their representation.
