HOTEL/MOTEL/MOTET is a work based on devices of storytelling and wordplay and was produced as a collaboration between visual artist Simon Lewandowski and poet Richard Price.

The installation consists of a television, cantilevered off the wall.

The animation on the screen resembles a sign for a seedy hotel which spins gently but as it turns, the letters mysteriously change, spelling out a series of cryptic messages which build a fractured, implied narrative.

The structure of the sign restricts the words to a maximum of five letters or spaces.

These short stanzas work independently of one another and are rotated at random over the exhibition period.
