Irresoluteoscillating was commissioned by Megan Broadmeadow for her performance
installation in a Victorian bathing wagon at the third Llandudno Arts Weekend in

Biography: Seth Guy appropriates, reconfigures and juxtaposes materials to create
playful performative works which propose a discourse into the cross-modal
correspondence of auditory and visual perception. Working at the intersections of
language, memory and imagination, in which the act of listening initiates a need to
reinvent, his work is idiosyncratic; often humorous and occasionally disquieting. Seth
Guy graduated with a Distinction from the MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths in 2013
and, in 2015 was awarded a five year live/work residency by Acme Artist Studios at
the Fire Station in London.
