Calgary, CANADA
10 - 15 January 2016

I have been selected as one of 5 international artists to participate in WATERSHED+ THE DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT LAB.


The Watershed+ Lab is a concept that immerses artists within the Watershed+ program, with the intent to support critical thinking, shared knowledge and to bring contemporary artists’ practices into the work of the Utilities and Environment Protection Department. This issues-based Lab encourages artists to explore and experiment in response to the context of Calgary’s water management system and the city. Following the Lab artists will submit a proposal for a public work.

POST BOX     E3 5QZ - HS9 5XW
A parcel’s journey from London to Barra [Outer Hebrides]


Launch of the website and book on Thursday 13 January, 6.30 – 8.30 pm
Contemporary Art Society, 11-15 Emerald Street, London WC1N 3QL

Royal Mail gave Tim Knowles unique access to its mail delivery system, to create an artwork that captures the topsy-turvy world of a parcel in the post. A specially constructed parcel recorded its 902-mile journey through the postal system from London to the Isle of Barra, in a sequence of 20,000 images, a continuous audio recording and a GPS track.  Revealing the unseen world of Royal Mail and how it delivers mail to the farthest corners of the UK.

The artwork consists of a website on which the journey can be followed, and an accompanying book with 155 color photographs selected from the journey. Designed by Knowles it captures a wonderful array of random, abstract images, post office interiors, sorting facilities, people at work, the processing of mail and the many different modes of transport used during its journey. This project forms part of a body of works that have been produced as they travel through the postal system.
