Scattered is a new platform enabling people to experience art in striking and unexpected locations. Disregarding pretension and staid clichés of how, when and where art should be enjoyed, Scattered sees art as accessible, emergent and dynamic.

An accidental glimpse, a secret conversation, a sporadic experience.

Shhhhh, no one’s going to be looking…

Would you cry?

"If I died, yeah, would you come to my funeral? Would you cry?
Would you feel some regret that we didn’t try?..."

Ah, only the wise musings of Jack the Lad Swing (or JLS to any heathens out there who need the abbreviated moniker) could capture the very real mental and physical pain and torment of the loss of something that could have been but never was. Emotional blackmail it may be - it's my funeral god dammit, cry, cry, I say, you heartless swine - but never has a truer sentiment been sung. When you feel let down, nay abandoned, you really do want the bastard who hurt you to feel pain and guilt - even if it is at the cost of your untimely (but let's face it, at least in some way beneficial) death.

Now, Scattered won't necessarily be begging you for 'love CPR' if you don't commit your heart and soul to taking part in the Scattered exhibition on May 8th but can you really risk the pangs of regret that will inevitably follow any such lack of involvement?

"Would it always haunt you, baby?"

  1. Ah, bless. But here's a thing: your first paragraph, under the image, suggests there will be 'new and exiting art in unusual locations'. Will there also be new and 'entering' art in these locations?
