But Wait There’s More #9

Sampling the delights of the best of art writing...

"Collado's practice works with the physical matter of film in a way that brings together the most plastic and sculptural aspects of mechanical projection. Her working process derails and stitches the infrastructures of the cinematic system as a factory of sonic light. Her two new works 'The Gas Thus Cuts in Bits' and 'The Illuminating Gas' are handmade ephemeral collages which, by injecting interruption and suspension in the flow of the celluloid strip, attempt to create direct experiences of gaseous luminiscences and optical sound. Desmond's practice uses Super 8 film to document neglected areas of the cityscape and to expose the hidden significances of the nature found within it. Her two new films 'Buddleja Forest' and 'Meva's Garden' portray a return to nature and the human urge to transform a wasteland into a garden. Sound plays an important role in these films. Interviews, field recordings and a prosaic narrative are combined to create film works, which can be read as visual anthropological essays."
