Part of Shoot Shoot Shoot: British Avant-Garde Film of the 1960s and 1970s (1966 - 1976)
A chance to see/create by movement, a kind of dance between the printer and myself.'
'Slides' came about through some fascination with the phenomena of matter, its frailty and transcience, the oddness of tiny filmed images from my earlier work lying around. Working with these parts, 35 mm slides cut into strips, thread, sewn film, light leaked footage, 8mm and 16mm fragments, I hand held this material in the contact printer. Images were created by movement and handling, literally keeping in touch with the elements.'
