The show opens on 21st June and runs till 2oth July.
As with the ODI show, the venue is again too small to showacse the full banner, however, an ‘8 Hours Labour‘ sample banner containing the same dataset has been knitted especially for the Brighton venue.
Screening Film is a free tool for audiences and exhibitors to find and promote film events. For more info follow us at @screeningfilm
Screening Film is a project by Sam Meech (Re-Dock) in collaboration with Interconnect IT. Screening Film ver 1.1 has been made possible thanks to the support of the LJMU Enterprise team ‘DO IT award’.
ABOUT THE SITE
The site aims to provide audiences with an overview of the diverse film-making and screening culture that exists in their area, and give profile and promotion to all forms of independent film-exhibition, from grass roots events to established cinemas. Screening Film is democratic platform for promoters, organisations and venues – networking independent film screening culture in the UK and making the ecology visible for all.
If you are an independent exhibitor, you can post your film events (simply register an account) and put your screening on the map. Exhibitors include established independent cinemas, film clubs and co-ops, alternative screening events, festivals, libraries, universities, artist spaces and more.
The Screening Film project has evolved from my interest in cinema ecology and models of film exhibition. Whereas in the past I have tried to create screening spaces through the Small Cinema project, with the Screening Film website I am attempting to provide a tool for mapping the film culture that already exists in communities across the UK.

An interesting event coming up – a live experiment in a Manchester music venue working with knitting and sound. In truth I’ve not ironed out the finer details of how exactly this will work, but I have faith we should be able to generate some interesting forms, both sonic and textile. I’m delighted as well to be joined by designer Marie Young who is looking at parallels between knitting and the Tenori-on. The event is part of the Whitworth Art Gallery Pub Crawl – a series of arts events in unusual spaces across manchester. The programme launches tonight.
Sunday 23rd Feb at Big Hands Manchester , 1pm – 7pm
A textiles experiment working with live music, sampled sound and knitting machines. A unique ‘band’ comprised of Tenori-on, a macbook, a hacked Brother 950i knitting machine, and possibly a couple of other music making devices, producing cross-over sounds and stitches. Exploring the parallels between punchcards and musical structures, electronic sequencing and the knitted digital image.

Time & Motion will be the first showing of the completed knitted 888 banner.
A Time & Motion Study is a scientific method – developed by Frederick Taylor and later by Frank and Lillian Gilbreth – used to analyse work procedures and determine the most efficient method of operation. This approach has been used extensively in workplaces including factories, hospitals, retail, and banks since the industrial age.
Using this as a starting point, the exhibition Time & Motion will use artworks, research projects, archival materials and interventions to track our journey through the world of work, from clocking on at the factory gates to checking in online from our home office or local entrepreneurial networking space. As our industrial economy has given way to a service and knowledge economy, producing ideas and experiences rather than artefacts, how have our patterns of day-to-day working life changed?
Next Saturday I will be doing a ‘knitting performance’ at the FILM MATERIAL SOUP event at Rogue Studios – a chance once again to share my work with knitting machines.
The event showcases work by artists using sound, moving image and lasers. It’s fair to say i’m in some good company (see the list on the flyer below). I’ll be creating the Knitted Horse in Motionfrom scratch, using the punchcard loop, praying the no yarn snags or dropped stitches befall me. The iconic horse will also be making an appearance as part of David Lynch‘s work with lasers and mobile projection.

I’ll be showing work in development from both the Knitting Digital and Punchcard Economy projects at the Korean Brand and Entertainment Expo in London. I’ll have my knitting machines there and showcasing some knitted animations and date visualisations. Other UK artists exhibiting include Dave Lynch, David Ogle, Gina Czarnecki, and Daniel Rourke and Kyoung Kim of GLTICH KARAOKE. Oh yeah, and PSY is upstairs at the main event as a hologram.
