|Title: ||Speech marks|
|Issue Date: ||1-Jan-2004 |
|Description: ||The (then) limitations of the mobile phone medium, small stuttering images of ten seconds, turned into strengths as the images are collaged into a series of autobiographical scenes. The primitive video harks back to Baird’s early experiments with his low resolution 60 line system, and my work over the last 25 years has touched on the limitations and possibilities of emergent technologies (article for COIL on John Baird in 1996, The Extent of Three Bells 1981 exploiting the burn effect of light on camera tubes, shown Nov 06 at Tate Modern, as part of Analogue show). The research examines how foregrounding of the medium creates a relationship with the viewer which both seduces and exposes the image making process. The context draws from structuralist film and video as video in the 1970s and my own previous work. This was one of the first video art pieces created on a mobile phone. Also shown at VAD Digital Arts Festival Girona 2004 (Special Award Prizewinner) 600 euros. Chroma 2004 Mexico City. San Francisco Art Institute 2005.Cosmic Zoom Festival Copenhagen 2005.
