Score is a temporary intervention made on site in the space of a few hours. The repetitive, cyclical action of the work’s making reiterates the ceaseless rhythm of the sea. Layers of circular markings are choreographically scribed on the weathered stone wall. These form ‘stave’ lines for propped wooden rods that delineate an undulating score for wave action and tidal movement. Much like music or a receding tide, the only traces that remain of this lyrical insculpturation are some faint marks on the wall and a documentary archive.
