Double O

Mosley, Jonathan; Warren, Sophie


Sophie Warren


Dimensions: 390cm x 390cm x 50cm

Materials: Motorcycle donut, vinyl, monitor and silent moving image loop

The rider performs a donut as a perfectly shaped ‘O’ in an urban location. By rotating the motorbike around the front wheel in a continuous motion he burns a thick circular mark in rubber on the tarmac. ‘Double O’ focuses on the illicit and fleeting activity of burning circular skid marks within the city and translates it through a spatial installation and video loop into an endless silent action governed by the logics of the gallery space.‘Double O’ intervenes within ‘Doing Things Separately Together’ as both a drawing and articulation of the city at the scale of 1:1
