Morgan Cahn, Katie Reid and Lada Wilson are all graduate members of the Student Curatorial Team having attended Student Curatorial Team workshops and seminars, and curated exhibitions/events/projects during their time at DJCAD. Each continue to practice artistically and curatorially developing their understanding of how these roles interchange and relate.

Richard Taylor's Work Done challenges the relation between practice and work most defiantly. Richard presents a small sculpture and a drawing connected by themes expanded upon in a new text read to the audience along with selected photography. The text to be read at 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm, will be slightly edited upon each reading after Richard journeys repeatedly all the way to the top of Dundee Law hill and back down to Enjoy..! Coffee Lounge to read again. Richard recently performed another Reading with Apparatus at Generator Projects for performingNOW.

Language and conversation take centre stage in both Morgan Cahn and Lada Wilson's works. Morgan's What do you think is vital knowledge or information for each of us to have? considers how we enact the process of learning while highlighting the moments of educational exchange that can occur through conversation. Developed as an active and evolving library, Morgan will exchange knowledge with visitors and log this in her newly bound book, pictured below with some of the encyclopaedias she will bring for reference.

Lada Wilson transforms words from different languages into objets trouvés that lead to participatory events. For shift, Lada invites the audience to take part in a verbal and visual exchange that will create a portrait of time from words and imagination, exploring our understanding of language and the structures surrounding it. Lada's work will encroach onto the street with words running along the side of the cafe acting as signposts for thinking to approaching visitors.
Katie Reid takes her role as curator/facilitator of shift as inspiration for the work she'll develop. To experiment through extending the functional role that is often part of being a curator of site responsive projects she will make use of what temporarily becomes excess furniture in Enjoy..! Coffee Lounge encouraging her to consider what the terms, 'leftovers,' 'material,' and 'position' may mean from this perspective within the situation of shift.
