Three 16mm projector performance and Shadow play in Apiary Studios, London. Torches were also used which projected shadows of the audience onto the screen. This performance in the apiary studios allowed the London and british film performance community to view and respond to my work. Strong use of mirrors to move the image to the ceiling. Filters held in the hand added were placed in front of the projectors. Torches were used to place shows of the hands over the image. How all these image manipulations and layerings were constructed was able to be seen by the audience as part of the performance. This was understood as a response to the more magical (Flusser) nature of digital image manipulation, which happens out of physical view, inside the computer. The shadow of the hand re-appeared throughout the performance, intimating the tactile nature of the imagery field created. One of the included films was a Black and White 16mm film made by the BBC: How Television works.
