Velvet Pesu “Concentric Circles on Red’”a framed act of conscious play, the unfolding, becoming and unveiling of self through process, chance, accident, change, temporality, rhythm, voice, light and image. The projection is handmade/drawn film made entirely of recycled materials on a modified purpose built hand cranked projector. The costume is also played as an instrument and made from recycled and organic materials.

Bonnie Hart “EBB&THROW” In a world of manifest convenience, multiplicity meets complicity. Entitlement of space and matter valued as temporal object for the individual. Collective petro-delusions and the flow of tides bury the heads in the sand. But can they hear the ocean through the waves? A prophylactic obscured perception of the natural word.  Amidst the BPA debris, life cycles as light and sound interpenetrate to a mollusc romance.
Work for 5 x 16mm film loop, sculptural installation, optical sound and live performance.
