South – A Journey in Super 8. The performance South by Tony Scott and Chris Mizsak was performed at Smiths Row on the 22rd March. South uses live spoken word, sound and Super 8 projections to tell the story of two characters, a saint and a biker, who travel through different landscapes and time scales, eventually reaching the same destination. Filmed and edited entirely on Super 8mm, the work is performed as a triptych of three projected films, exploring the perspectives of the two characters within the landscape itself.

Performance of South at The Swan in Lawshall, Suffolk.

Postcard View

Random Art Generator by Colin Dawar. Is based on a super8 projector with a clear film loop going through it. Ink is dropped onto the film and it’s them smeared and smudged by a sponge and toothbrush as the film goes past. The film is then dried using a hair dryer and projected. The idea is that the film is clear when the exhibition starts and completely black by the end. Created entirely with Super 8 and coloured inks. Further info at artnoodle
