About : ‘The Lunar House “Re-enactment”’ was commissioned by King’s College, Cambridge and forms part of a report by the author on the Arts Council England and King’s College, Cambridge Art and Law Seminar: Interdisciplinary and New Media Arts, which was held in Cambridge in October 2007. The story also continues Tony White’s Balkanising Bloomsbury project, and was created by cutting up, remixing and re-narrativising fragments from various sources including materials relating to the work of artists Heath Bunting and Rod Dickinson. ‘The Lunar House “Re-enactment”‘ was devised as an opportunity to reflect more deeply upon the work of artist Heath Bunting, which had caused minor controversy amongst Art and Law seminar participants without its being fully discussed.
