Nigel Ayers is dedicated to expanding the possibilities of Interactive Art through a combination of art installation, activism, text, online activity and physical objects. His work manifests in the form of books, sculpture, t-shirts as well as in performance experiences.

Having been long involved in experimental music he has recently concentrated on the possibilities of the sound art installation, integrated within the poetic qualities of material objects.

His work examines boundaries between the exotic and the infra-ordinary. Since 2006 he has been involved in an in-depth exploration of the geography, folklore and cultural resonance of place; notably in a series of documented ritual walks on Bodmin Moor.

Hey, I've seen this done in Covent Garden. They call it "living statues".

Psycho/geography at Newlyn Art Gallery, Cornwall, UK

Wednesday 23 - Sunday 27 January, Upper Gallery

Psycho/geography is a changing exhibition of work curated by four
artists, Rupert White, Nigel Ayers, Daryl Waller and Paul Chaney
using the collective name GreenCube.
The artists are all interested in exposing the deep psychological
and political content inherent in the landscape and our experience of
place. Though connecting with environmental issues, their work goes
beyond the simple moral imperatives implied by the green agenda,
and instead explores related areas of fantasy, desire and imagination.
The result cannot be predicted in advance, but, through working
together the artists hope to discover shared aspects of rural living
that are new, radical and challenging.
