Rachel Pimm with Julia Crabtree & William Evans

The Periodic Tables is a collaborative research project into elemental materiality. U, is for Uranium, presented here as spoken and uttered addresses made through the voices of organisms sited in the primordial soup of the Gullet.
Rachel Pimm works in sculpture, video, text and performance to make work that explores environments and their materialities, histories and politics often from the point of view of non-human agents such as plants, minerals, worms, water, gravity or rubber.
