  2. I have dug up the zoetrope, a pre-cinema optical toy, and am using it to create and explore a visual language of loops and spirals. When spun, the complex circular sculptures, dubbed cinetropes, are a blur to the human eye but come to full animated life when viewed through shutter glasses or the lens of a fast-shutter video camera. The Bellows March runs anthropomorphized concertinas through a cycle of destroy-create-destroy, and bridges digital and physical animation processes via 3-D printed, hand-painted cinetropes.

    Visually and aurally mesmerizing. It is rare to see something this unique and well-realized.

  4. Reynold Reynolds and Patrick Jolley
    Burn, USA 2002
    10min. HD video transferred from 16mm


    Burn is a stunning evocation of those unspoken, those secrets, worries and lies, forming a force which is always a part of the fabric of everyday interactions; at first niggling at the edges, then - provoked by a word or a gesture - suddenly searing through everything and everyone in its path. Belinda McKeon, The Irish Times
