Travelling with Mark

2003, 6 minutes, three screen video

Music/sound Le Grice
- digital manipulation exploiting the transcoding ‘mosaic’ of video shot on a train journey from Berlin to southern Germany with Mark Webber. Transformations of selected sequences, - slowed, recoloured, compared. New rhythms - slow thoughts inside a train at speed – blurred and fragmented landscape through the window. The sound is produced by frequency manipulation of the train recorded with the video.

Self Portrait

after Raban Take Measure

2008, 8 minutes 20 seconds

Self Portrait looks for an approach to a specific relationship between the duration of a work and material conditions in the projection as did William Raban in the film- performance Take Measure. The main difference is that Raban’s work was made when cinematic media had distinct physical properties linking medium directly to image - this
self portrait recognizes that there is no such simple materiality for cinema following the emergence of digital processes. Instead the work takes a conceptual base – the speed of light and the time taken for light to travel from the sun to illuminate objects on earth –thus the duration of 8 minutes 20 seconds..

Water Lilies after Monet

2008, 3 minutes

Music/sound Le Grice Sound re-mix from AMM The Inexhaustible Document
My experience of Monet’s large scale panoramic paintings of his water lily garden when I was about 14 years old became a crucial artistic memory. There have been a number of versions of the material I shot in about 1984 of water lilies and reeds in a pond. This sketch is part of  a larger project ‘Finiti’ .

The sound was made by AMM for an earlier video work but has been re-mixed for this version.
