Screening at lab

I'm honoured to announce that my 16 mm film Barcodes (2008) is to be screened at lab in London October 16th. This is a place where I, as an analogue filmmaker, was dreaming of having a residency, working my way through new projects on 16 mm and getting to know London a bit better.

Finally I get to visit this place that I've heard so much about.

The event is programmed by Vicky Smith and Karel Doing.

Directly pasted from's site:

"We refer to Living Film with respect to the reversibility of the terms: film as object that is activated through physical contact and film as an ongoing mode of material practice that shapes the consciousness of, animates and enlivens its makers.

This program of films, installations and performances focuses on the use of film as a living material. In mainstream cinema every trace of physical contact is removed from the film material, but with the disappearance of film from the industry, the medium is liberated from this armour.

Living Film presents a selection of works made through the practice of touching film, applying bodily fluids, and chemically and/or physically altering it's surface. These works take the form of single screen films, performative action, installation and expanded cinema.

At stake here is not just an artistic concept or method but the formation of a strategy towards an alternative filmmaking ecology: working with cheap or out of date film stocks; bartering knowledge for materials; finding cooperative forms for using resources and equipment.
