Enjoy 10 short films in a continuous 2 hour loop day and night with brief intermission in neon blue between each film in the following order: Faces of Perth David Hay Time can mark people’s faces in incredible ways. Enjoy the performative nature of portraiture through a mosaic of studio-style portraits taken at the artspace from the Provost to the Big Issue seller. Masque John Butler (Homage to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Lev Manovich’s ‘database narrative’) Time is money and horror suggests this 3D visualisation of an Occult Transaction Space. A story where the Prime Contractors map out the rules of engorgement. A Day in the Life of the Sun Michael Windle Superb time-lapse photography, condensing 24 hours in a single continuous shot over 22 screens and 4 minutes. Counting Down Until the End of Time Lei Cox Time is stretched out to infinity and white noise according to this giant digital clock gone out of control Beginning Ending Michael Windle + Brian Cope A cinematic journey through time partly inspired by Anne Frank’s Diary and the tradition of the performance art for camera. 360 Degrees Dalziel + Scullion A detailed study of our cyclical relationship with time and nature taking you on round trip of the Black Wood of Ranoch. From Our Own Correspondent Dan Perjovschi Relive the major events of 2005 with our artist-correspondent reporting from London, Istanbul, Venice and Paris. Much Better Than This Rafaël Rozendaal Time, love and computers all bear infinite number of possibilities as seen in this seductive love story. The Moon and the Oceans Henna Assikainen + Silvana Macedo + Reza Tavakol Tell the time at night as the ancients did by reading the Moon’s faces and the tidal coastline. deStructures Prema Murthy Historical time and demographics appear as a living, breathing body of 3D data rather than boring graphs in this map of New York.
Welcome = interactive soundscape doorway of 16 sensors and 8 speakers Time Machines Matt Green Taking inspiration from Star Trek and 1980s sci-fi Green allows you to move at warp speed to your destination. Walk through to ‘teleport’ yourself with a distinct musical tone. Stay on, to activate the audio sensors and hear the tic-toc of many antique time devices. From cuckoo clocks to church bells, the number of chimes is relative to the number of people in the building. Green’s time machine can also broadcast the actual year and date only to decrease or increase with each of your comings or goings. Or go far into the future -– with sonic references from The Blade Runner and a classic ‘vocoder’ effect of the voice.
