Psychogeography meets Open University in this surreal instructional video for sociologists, film-makers and of course property developers looking to “rightly read an area”. Employing a variety of film-making techniques, ONE SQUARE MILE hints at the rich diversity of urban spaces whilst demonstrating the absurdity of trying to represent them in any meaningful way.

Featuring soundtrack by Graham Massey.
One Square Mile was co-commissioned by University of Salford and Quays Culture.

One Square Mile @ Lightwaves Fest, Salford

November 25, 2016 | By | No Comments

ONE SQUARE MILE – a new artist film commission by myself and Chris Paul Daniels, premieres at LIGHTWAVES festival in Salford, from 9th – 18th December. The film is one of four artists films that have been curated as part of the Northern Artist Film Programme, which is in itself part of a much larger festival of digital art works that will be installed in and around Salford Quays

At 7 minutes, our film is mercifully short, but incredibly rich, comprised of a variety of film-making experiments and techniques that aimed to canvas the diversity of spaces within our One Square Mile ‘area of investigation’, whilst at the same time highlighting the absurdity of trying to represent and quantify a place as complex as Salford and Media City. The film was shot over 3 months, using a questionable research methodlogy that produced many hours of fantastic footage, that was then distilled down to it’s final form. Psychogeography meets Open University only to be co-opted by the  Re-Generation Game. I am extremely proud of our ‘film baby’.

One Square Mile was co-commissioned by Univeristy of Salford and Quays Culture, and will at some print, I believe, be screened as a pre-feature short at HOME, Manchester.
