Documentary by Owen Tooth about the amazing oil paint artist Emma Tooth. The film follows Emma as she sets up for a show of her series 'Concilium Plebis' which is a series of paintings of chavs, hoodies and British street culture painted in an 'Old Master' style. At the opening night, there is a dance performance by b-boy group Bad Taste Cru.
Her paintings have to be seen to be believed.

This is a video of an installed light piece that I made for my year two fine arts assessment. The installation uses projected light and a haze machine to create an interactive solid light form a la Anthony McCall. In this piece I have projected line drawn animations of wave and water forms to create the sensation of being within the tube of a breaking wave or floating in choppy water. I added wave and water sounds to augment the association for the viewer. The result (as an installation) is incredibly profound, providing a truly interactive art piece without using any solid materials. The video has an otherworldly quality and a is fairly mesmerizing but lacks the full impact of the installation.
Project X: You Are Here is a living time capsule and interactive museum created by Hand2Mouth and filled in with the stories, memories and experiences of visitors. A site-mobile performance, Project X: You Are Here has performed at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, The National Summit of Ensemble Theatres, artist live/work spaces, and a high rise condominium loading bay.
GROUND CONTROL, built into a retro-fitted Mobile Mini storage container, is the heart and headquarters of Project X. Here you find stations for listening, reading, writing, and an instant-time-capsule drop off site; a collective time-line stretches across the outside of Ground Control, recording seminal events and future hopes; this is a space for people to remember and share, listen and record.
SATELITES, mobile performance units, radiate from Ground Control and house opportunities to Choose Your Legacy, Survey Your Life, Record Memories, and Talk With A Guide. Contributions from these interactive performances are returned Ground Control for display.
Project X: You Are Here was commissioned by One Reel Productions for Seattle’s Bumbershoot Arts Festival where it premiered in August 2008. Additional development support provided by Milepost 5, Portland Community College Art Beat Festival, South Waterfront Artists-in-Residence Program, The Kinsman Foundation, Regional Arts and Culture Council, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, 4Culture, and Artists Trust Grants for Artist Projects Award.
