A film made as part of a nine month residency exploring sites connected to philanthropy in North East England. I worked in collaboration with social scientist Dr Siobhan Daly responding to her research and particularly thinking about histories and definitions of philanthropic work. The film includes footage of the volunteer book repair group at the Lit and Phil Newcastle who have been working for twenty years, alongside text from a copy of Prometheus Bound which is the first known reference to philanthropy, and text charting the etymology of the word promethea. The film was screened in the Lit and Phil and in the committee room of the Natural History Society of Northumbria in January 2018. When researching philanthropy I was struck by the monumental classically mannered hands of many statues dedicated to philanthropists. The film was my own way of playing with this sense of monumentality, and thinking about the time consuming and largely invisible work of this group. The film is a companion piece to a hand made book 'A Brief Compendium of Named and Unnamed Objects' which I also worked on with the group ( learning to bind books for the first time) and which I have donated to the lit and phil library, and the library of the Natural History Society, Great North Museum Hancock.
