Improv 2

Having created all of the micro-works for the Twitter Video Project, footage from one of the improvisations filmed at at Chisenhale in August shaped itself into a one-minute piece - too long for a tweet, but standard length for a Shiftwork piece.

Threshold filter was applied after editing, and I like the way that the shadow - against Chisenhale’s distinctive brick back wall - appears to continue the movement sequence while the performer is off-screen.

Phrasemaking stills

A stage in the process of creating Phrasemaking, earlier this year. The finished piece uses different text, but inverting the brightness values resulted in some interesting stills.
