Video shown as part of LDA's AV Night, June 24th at The Collection, Lincoln LN2 1LP.
Lincoln Digital Arts, Audio Visual Night. Alternative energies, electronic media is irrefutably connected to Co2 emissions and the electro social network.
All turn native, a play on the word 'alternative'. The piece is based round an interview done for the Tape Noise series on London Radio station Resonance104.4 FM, about alternative energy. Largely composed of clips taken by different people of Tape Noise performances, the film refers to the essential use of electronic apparatus.
These clips are superimposed into several layers that each represent different perspectives on a similar subject, alternate views that often conflict. For example the way that environmental views might not fit in with economic policies, they jar in the same way that the layers of imagery merge in the video, whilst other ideas can get lost in the background.
The sources used for the piece are mixed with footage of willow harvesting, short rotation willow coppice is a source of renewable energy used to produce carbon neutral electricity.
The film explores the contemporary value landscape and the prominence of associated technologies that determine our everyday existence.
Tape Noise references background noise, utilising sound, image, performance and found objects in an examination of the ongoing conflicts between order and chaos, manifested as entropy and evolution, events which shape both the individual and the social realm.
