Project Banking: Three bank accounts were set up, an amount placed in each (later reduced to £1) and money sent flowing in circles, automatically via Standing Order, on a daily basis. (It turns out, in fact, that it is even possible to do this more than once on the same day). The results so far include a stack of statements received from each bank, a looping film or 'simupoem' (Befiling) and performance event (entitled Banky) which involved percussion onto, and destruction of, a filing cabinet in order to generate a soundtrack for the film. Also, the resulting hand-hammered Ryman filing cabinet was given the title 60/40 (to indicate the percentages of it owned by Micheál O'Connell/Mocksim and Keef Winter respectively).
