This project used three vinyl
records with QR codes to give the viewer
instant access to these pages, streaming
live and recorded sound and video from
three locations.

The live streams are no longer available.

Initially devised for Rhodio 2011 (Rhod in Venice).

Placing records containing web links in the exhibition in Venice was the starting point from which the idea developed to include not only an exploration of vinyl records and music but to create connections between three places in Wales and one in Venice.

I do enjoy a good pun.
The title ‘A Welsh Stream’ while describing a comon feature of the welsh landscape and a method of digital media delivery, might also describe my creative process, with depths and shallows, highs and lows, sometimes fast and sometimes slow, persistent and unceasing.
Ive always had an aversion to editing so the internet allows a constant flow of work, sketches, ideas, finished and unfinished, an outpouring of creative activity. A place for sharing freely, for creating connections between people, places and ideas, embracing notions of free culture by using readily available free web services whenever possible, allowing free access by as wide and varied an audience as possible.
