HATS are Laura Musavi, Aya Fukami, Sarah Cooney and Jane Cheadle
'The room is literally empty. There is nothing in it, absolutely nothing, except for a small table with a lamp on it ... The walls are bare and empty, save one Chinese print with a mountain scene.
'Look', he said 'I like it this way, clean and empty. I cant stand rooms with furniture and things. This room helps me to keep my inner unity.'
'Don't fool me' I said 'it's just the opposite: you are split inside into one thousand pieces so you are trying now to heal those pieces together.'
'ok, you may be right,' [he said] 'but it is legitimate to try to put oneself together by means of architecture. Maybe that's one of the functions of all art, and especially architecture ...'
-Jonas Mekas, 1957

HATS Smartloft is the result of a 12 day experimental residency that took place between December 2009 and May 2010.
The residency served to spark a series of installations and discussions amongst the four UK based artists who come together on a periodic basis to challenge the intuitive nature of their work methods.
