Connective Tissue8: Interval Films

'A large percentage of the programmes in those days were live, and camera breakdowns, even after all that tender, loving care, were sadly quite common. To cover these little interruptions, or when programmes were shorter than they should have been, there was a collection of 'interval films' that were shown. The most famous of these (in the U.K.) was the potter's wheel. Shot on film, it showed a potter making something on his wheel. All you saw was his hands and the clay as he worked, always pushing it down to start again, so you never saw the finished thing.'
Bob Lockyer

Series of stills from footage filmed over a two year period, which will be developed into a series of 'interval films', placed between each section of the Memory Pool's forty pieces.
