Kidd, N (2014) Inflate automated. In: Test Run, Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, 2 May - 8 June 2014. [Exhibition]
|Abstract:||This painting system involved 7 paintings positioned around the space. The system operated using a peristaltic pump, an arterial system of copper pipes and 120 litres of white emulsion paint. The peristaltic pump moved the paint from a tank through copper pipes into a plastic tube inserted into each paintings belly. The continual action of the pump filled the paintings from the inside out, the paint forced each canvas to expand until paint seeped out of holes cut in the linens surface.|

|Number of Pieces:||1|
|Medium:||Copper Pipe, canvas on panel with hand cut holes, peristaltic pump, emulsion paint, compression joints and tank.|

TEST RUN was about learning through making; the idea that an artist’s working process - the practical realisation and manifestation of ideas - is a form of research in and of itself. Over the course of TEST RUN a changing presentation of installations, workshops and discussions offered visitors an insight into the creative process by exposing the mechanics of artistic production.
Contributing artists included John Smith, Larry Achiampong, Tom Woolner, Serena Korda, Raphael Hefti.
