Commissioned by Drake Music, Distant Interiors was created during March/April 2011 by three artists investigating translation and interpretation via a remote, three-way collaboration
The starting point for the commission was a one-minute silent video by Melanie Clifford, DM’s Artist/Curator in Residence. Across a five-week period the artists used online communication tools to explore translation and interpretation in their work. During this period, some of their ideas, conversations and work-in-progress were featured on the blog on Drake Music’s website.
The final piece was exhibited online, marking the launch of Drake Music’s New Commissions programme.
