Becoming curious about the names of the various brick patterns within buildings and how the patterns relate to the character and history of the place they are found in.

Struck by the most simple brick bond "stretcher" or "runner" and how it could be interpreted as movements. Stretcher/Runner (Cube) is a flexible platform for creating movements or stagings within the projected space of a void of the cube.
Stretcher/Runner (Cube) was conceived of in the spirit of collaboration, originally commissioned as a platform for activation during (((O))), a live art programme curated by Lee Welch and Teresa Gillespie.
