Synopsis:

Wood and Harrison collaborated with Picture This to tour a new body of work Twenty-Six (Drawing and Falling Things).

The works in Twenty-Six are designed to be shown simultaneously on twenty-six monitors. They comprise a series of recorded experiments which form a kind of reference catalogue of diagrams or working models that research human size, scale and movement in relation to a devised architectural environment.

In 2002 a boxed set was published comprises twenty six sketches produced in preparation for the works ‘drawing and falling things'. Each work is accompanied by a text by artists such as Richard Wentworth and Smith/Stewart, and curators such as Matthew Higgs and Kay Pallister.

Twenty-Six is now in both the Tate and Government Art collections.
