Having spent much time already wondering whether something exists if it isn’t documented, I must admit I didn’ t take the chance of my work not existing and so I had it filmed. Here is the video of The Huge Entity installation being used by amused passers-by. What video can do is communicate effectively (more effectively than my writing anyway) how a piece actually works. Thanks to Neringa for making the film.
Every Tuesday I run a short screening of works around a theme at Liverpool Art and Design Academy, called ‘Did You See That Thing?’. The aim is to give people an hour where the students can be open minded to new and old works that may shock, surprise, inspire and disgust them. Previous weeks have covered the themes of AudioVisual, Love, Ted Talks, and last week was particularly fun: FOOD. It featured works by Jan Swankmajer, PES, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players and Jonathan Meades. The flyer was designed by a thirdyear typophile, Phil Kiel.
