CAMP is involved in a 2-year "print-from-web" project, linked to its own investigations of the infrastructures of commerce and pleasure in this part of London. As part of the first "block study", we looked at several buildings and their ownership and use histories, and produced a series of tablemats.
The web-based part of the project resides at http://edgwareroad.org. This website collects materials from various such "studies", conducted by us and others, which then are collaboratively edited and published in a number of physical forms: volumes, pamphlets and placemats. This is an ongoing project, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's Public Program.
In collaboration with the Centre for Possible Studies,
Janna Graham, Amal Khalaf and Åbäke.
Update: the very first publication/ pamphlet made using archival material and our editing / printing tool was done in the St. Marylebourne school in August 2010. This has become a "relay" in which by now various groups, in this case St. Marylebourne School, Ultra-Red, CAMP, Abake, have been already involved. This is sweet.
See Images tab above for some pics!
Update 2: An interview with CAMP on the Edgware Road project just got published in the Arab Studies Journal (Spring, 2010).
Update 3: www.edgwareroad.org is now live (July, 2011)
Update 4: we published our book on pleasure on the road, see side bar, entirely designed on edgewareroad.org. Oct 2013

Save the Dates!
A project of listening, including with our ears, to some materials that seem to not touch us directly, but make up our "environment".
60 minute film produced with the National Coastwatch Institution, Folkestone, Kent, UK.
showing at the NCI cabin at Copt Point (10:30 am - 5:00 pm) and in pubs in Folkestone harbour,
as part of the Folkestone Triennial upto September 25, 2011.
Saturday or Sunday evening screenings through winter, exploring footage both within and outside the usual capsule of "the film". An experience that could be similar to watching films, or at other times harder to digest, or slower to release, closer to the moment of shooting, less censorious, and less fearful of finitude. Another life, another world of viewing and listening experiences is always possible.
Ashok and Azeer spent some time thinking about and building the CAMP terrace roof structure, built in late 2009. Some of the designs that were sketched out are further below: a big requirement was some retractability, i.e. the ability to have a shading roof in the day but to have it open/ partially open at night, for things like screenings under the stars.

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.
