VENT was a month long live art residency in Oxford during April 2005. During the residency, we worked on a number of areas of our practice. These included:

* the development of our performance ‘Low Profile presents: Just In Case’

* working with an ‘open studio’ model as a way to engage an audience face to face in a gallery situation

*a two part installation – slide projection in the gallery window & ‘growing’ installation inside the gallery space where visitors were asked to display what they had ‘just in case’

*actively persuing an enlarged audience – as part of our residency, we actively made contact with new possible audiences. one example of this activity was using the situation of a ray mears book-signing in oxford city centre to individually approach over 100 people to talk about our project and invite them to participate and/or come to the performance.
