Trans-coding experiment

Ocular Lab 2003-2010 was established as a site for experimental and alternative models of artistic representation and activity that encouraged the development of professional practice. 'The Lab' developed through discussions, relationships and professional activities, building on the histories of 'h' project (1997-1998) and Ocular Lab's past incarnation, Ocular Laboratory (2000 -2001), as well as numerous off-site projects and collaborations. However, it was principally through experimentation, discussion, participation and a strong notion of hosting-as-practice - manifested through regular dinner events as well as a strong element of artists' residencies at the Lab premises - that Ocular Lab created certain alternatives to mainstream opportunities.

The exhibition was also an opportunity to launch Hostings: Ocular Lab Inc 2003-2010, published by Surpllus, a retrospective publication on Ocular Lab and its activities.

Ocular Lab Inc.exhibition included: John Abbate, Damiano Bertoli, Sandra Bridie and Kendal McQuire, Julie Davies, Katherine Huang, Raafat Ishak, Sean Loughrey, Jon Luker and Megan Hansen-Knarhoi, Sally Mannall, Tom Nicholson, Louise Paramor, Kirsten Rann and Nick Devlin, Elvis Richardson, Alex Rizkalla, Bernhard Sachs
