Rooted Out
two 16mm projection performance with sound 8 mins 2017

Rooted Out, made with Rob Gawthrop, is a double film projection event, attempting to create a full colour image from monochrome film of flags (of the UK and EU) being waved, through a revolving shutter of red and green filters (akin to the Kinemacolor process). The likelihood of faithful colour reproduction is fickle, but as with the question of feeling European and British, it is not a black & white issue but is a question of what you want to see as much as what is constructed. The sound is two ukuleles played live, with a motorised plectrum through two speakers.
