At the Edge of the World

During lockdown in 2020, Pinchbeck & Smith devised a digital duet out of images and text they sent each other every day.  This method of virtual exchange continued for 24 days with a single photo being sent per day as the stimulus for the writing of 24 lines of text. Inspired by Jean Mohr’s book of the same name, At the Edge of the World reflected on notions of mortality and memory. Continuing Pinchbeck & Smith’s ongoing explorations of image and text, site and space, At the edge of the world was supported by hAb Arts (Manchester).
