How to Live was commissioned to reflect on the uncertain times that we found ourselves in during the Coronavirus pandemic. This new work shows the audience How to Live, obliquely referencing the present moment, while also pointing to new potentials.

This newly commissioned work alongside “How to Fly”, builds on a series which uses the form of online video tutorials to explore ideas around patterns in nature and existence. Each of them begins with Blandy giving a step-by-step tutorial explaining how to make a short video about a specific subject, only using the tools available via a computer – through the Internet and video editing software to video games.

Commissioned by John Hansard Gallery, UK.
