web_RogueOpen-81

At the end of September I took part in the Film Soup Collective’s show as part of the Rogue Open Studios event. The Film Soup collective has been meeting for over a year, and the artists involved all explore fundamental properties of film and animation. Showing as part of this event were Dave Griffiths, Mary Stark, Joe Duffy, Chris Paul Daniels and myself.

This gave me a first chance to share my Knitted Horse in Motion prototype. I presented the animation alongside the knitted ‘reel’ and the punchcard that created it.

Mary Stark showed a 16 mm loop created from an exposure of upholsterer’s measuring tape.

Dave Griffiths created his own 35mm film stock from  splicing tape, and used a polarising filter to reveal the amazing range of colours inherent within the material.

Joe Duffy shared his stereoscopic images from his recent residency in China with Dave. The slides were exhibited on a lightbox with stereoscopic viewers.

Chris Daniels showed two video works that referenced early animation techniques – ┬áthe Zoetrope and the Thaumatrope.

Punchcard Economy – Worker In Progress

September 15, 2013 | By | One Comment

10am – 6pm, 18th – 22nd September at FACT, Liverpool. I will be working in the FACT Connects space with the knitting machines, showing developments for the Punchcard Economy work, alongside experiments with digital knitting. I will also be trying to sign people up to logging their working hours via the Punchcard Economy website.

Feel free to drop by and see the work, take part in the Punchcard Economy piece, and even have a go yourself on the knitting machines.

FILM – Knit and Natter

September 5, 2013 | By | No Comments

The NEPHRA Knit and Natter group is based in New Moston, North Manchester. I began making this film last year, but only found time to edit it recently. What I’ve tried to do is give a sense of knitting the film together, by using four interviews and stitching together discussion of techniques and personal gripes, so that the final piece is an absurd narrative created through structure. It’s quite a formal approach to film-making, but I think it works well in this case, giving a feel of the knitting group, rather than an factual overview of it.
