The Auxiliary

Spend some time looking at nothing in particular.

Alan Smith’s Nothing is a 3 screen mosaic of short phone clips, recorded every day since 2020 of wherever Alan happens to be when alone, often taken when catching his breath, during walks in the countryside where he lives. Each clip lasts about 19 seconds, which is apparently the length of time someone looks at an artwork in a gallery.
