16mm, B&W, Silent, 2.4 mins
Pending is a 100ft length of film formed into a ‘living loop’ by the audience, before being taken up and played out by the projector. This interlacing creates a sympathetic film which conjoins the audience, the artist and the subject in an act of duration and suspension
16mm B&W , optical Sound, 4 mins
Mixing up film and domestic structures, this film reaches beyond the frame, testing out access and escape, aperture and portal.
The letraset sound also bumps its way across the frame boundary into the visible.
16mm B&W, optical sound, 3.5 mins
A study of the optical sound strip on film, where light triggers sound. Objects as noise, passing across and out of the visible film frame, then through the unseen strip.
The artist, the action, and the consequent sound, all skirt around the edges of the visible. Interrupting the usual boundaries of framing and structure, this is an extended format film, asking the viewer to see what isn’t in view and to hear the shape of things.
Sticking the frames of a double shoot in 16mm onto 35mm frames gave me the sense that I could locate the split, and the moments and place them into synchronization. However the resulting film has a life of it’s own and has evaded my determinations. The film frames are material and won’t sit still, they have taken up running along with the length of the film on its journey through the projector whilst a frenzy of wood splitting takes place.
