Artist and writer Tamarin Norwood works with text, video and sculptural installation to examine gesture and pictorial figuration in drawing and writing. Throughout 2016 Norwood is in residence at Spike Island, working with a network of researchers and practitioners including an animator, a 3D print engineer, a choreographer and a sign language translator to explore the acts of drawing and writing in relation to time and three-dimensional space. She hosts a series of public conversations, presentations and live experiments as she develops a new body of work.
