Marking Time

March, 2012
Marking Time - clock

A series of interactive digital installations commissioned by Dancin' Oxford for Oxford Castle Quarter. All of the installations were site-responsive and reflected the history of the site as Oxford's former prison; drawing inspiration from the mundanity of prison life, the chores that prisoners were forced to carry out, and the idea that time weighs heavy when one is deprived of freedom.

Inspiring show, evoking & emotional. Thanks for bringing it to Oxford. Hannah DC

The installations were designed to be interacted with by the public and by performance. There were 8 improvised performances over the two days the project was open.

Marking Time was the project that led to the founding of Digital Prisoners. Neil was commissioned to lead this project, partly as a professional development opportunity for dance artists to get experience with interactive digital technology.

Honorary prisoner — Kate Willis.
