Full text not available from this repository.


Common Rest, a multimedia collaborative work consisting of a 10-inch vinyl album with an accompanying book of poems by Holly Pester. The project is the creative output of work developed by Pester during her residency with Hubbub ? an international team of scientists, historians, artists and broadcasters based at the Wellcome Collection ? materialising Pester?s interest in speech rhythms and patterns which are responsive to work and rest. The album comprises 7 tracks, each a collaboration between Pester and another artist, in which ideas associated with lullabies form the basis for an improvisation. Each track has its own unique aesthetic, exploring different female responses to ideas of work and play, care and collaboration, motherhood and sexuality, curses and spells.
