Video + Video/Film (print)


'VIDEO + VIDEO/FILM some possibilities suggested by some experience' (offset lithographic Print, 100cm x 60cm) June 1973, Experimental and Avant-Garde Film Festival, National Film Theatre, London. Reconstructed facsimile, with an Introduction, in June 2005.

The print, ‘Video + Video/Film – Some Possibilities Suggested by Some Experience,’ emerged from several converging circumstances. It followed a period between 1971 and 1972 of working quite intensively with the first generation of ‘industrial’ video cameras, monitors and spool-to-spool recorders. My background working with photography and 16mm film, both as a film-maker artist and as a film editor and cameraman in the television and film industries, softened my entry to working with this technology. I was a part-time lecturer at various colleges of art so had access to these low bandwidth video facilities. Teaching institutions, if not individuals, could well afford to purchase low-band video at this point as it had low running costs as well as good pedagogical prospects.
