Live Version, 1993
Four monitor video installation, each film 60 mins, colour with sound
The four films document the process of me being taught to play the four parts (guitar, drums, bass and vocals) of Led Zep’s seminal rock classic ‘Stairway To Heaven’. The ‘tutors’ are art school colleagues from Glasgow School of Art and CalArts. The idea circles around the process of learning and emulating, acquiring (subsiduary) skills through traditional educational models on the one hand and those learned through friends on the other.
