Bore Song - a suspended vertical film loop projected onto float glass - is an attempt to describe distance, time and emotion in physical terms: the filmstrip as a measurement of the time it takes for the bore tide to pass, the length of a breath and the weight of grief.
For Song of Grief, there are two 16mm projectors almost face to face. From each an identical film loop threads across the space, the films - absent of image - contain the sound of a rising howl. “…the simplicity of materials producing a magic as the light caught the transparent filmstrips and created wave patterns that reflected onto the wall, yet like the conjuror, the illusion is perhaps most pleasurable as you can see how it is done.” Malcom Le Grice
From a body of work made along the River Severn. When heard together, Bore Song and Song of Grief form a minor sixth interval.
