Brute Clues is the first formal Collaboration between Tom Watt, Tanad Williams and Andreas Kindler von Knobloch. They have created an artwork drawing on their mutual interest in architecture – built interruptions in the landscape and industry.
Their structure – which they describe as ‘not a stage, not a dam, not a platform, and not an excavation’ – can be walked on, rested on, climbed, or viewed from afar.
With roles designated for the various materials that make up Brute Clues, the limitations and rules surrounding both the materials and the institution are embedded in its structure.
Each with a distinct artistic practice, Tom Watt, Tanad Williams and Andreas Kindler von Knobloch researched sites throughout the American West Coast and Mojave Desert, including Joshua Tree National Park, Taliesin West, Arcosanti, the Hoover Dam and the Utah Salt Flats.
The resulting artwork is collaborative to its core, with the raw materials becoming codes for both function and form.
