The End of the World…is over

apocalypse now

Red Wire Gallery’s ‘Apocalypse Now’ exhibition finished at the weekend. There were some great works in their including a 4 screen installation of an old lady 4, 3, 2, and 1 days before her death, and these crows pecking at baby birds. ‘A Long Journey’, a video piece I developed for Amos‘ music performance The Winter Will Not Last Forever in collaboration with Pete Bamford, was also part of the exhibition. The video is essentially a glowing red  pulse that grows and wanes, whilst crackle swirls around like a snow storm, feeding back on itself, whilst a voice over recounts their personal reflection on battling bereavement and drug addiction and the possibility of hope. The crows provided an audience.

Rotunda Cinema

August 6, 2009 | By |

On Monday we had the first ever Rotunda cinema at the Lee Jones centre in Kirkdale.  Over 40 pensioners and guests came and enjoyed the screening, developed and hosted by the young people from Rotunda college.

We had adverts for local places of interest, trailers for classic films such as ‘The Quiet Man’, the ABC minors song, a raffle, oranges and ice-cream, and of course popcorn.  Milkman Tommy himself  came along to watch his own films by local film-maker Tim Brunsden.

The price of entrance was 1p or a clean jam jar.
