A 1000-second timelapse movie of Longplayer Live at the Roundhouse, London, on the 12th September 2009.
Longplayer is a 1000-year-long piece of music which began playing on 1 January 2000 and is looked after by a UK based charitable trust, The Longplayer Trust. Any donations help to keep Longplayer playing into the uncertain future centuries, to stage more live performances and continue to make the music freely available via the internet stream and listening posts around the world. More information can be found at the website, longplayer.org
Psychologist Silvan Tomkins Affect Theory;
In psychoanalysis an Affect is an emotion or subjectively experienced feeling.
The nine affects are: 1. Enjoyment/Joy 2. Interest/Excitement 3. Surprise/Startle 4. Anger/Rage 5. Disgust 6. Dissmell 7. Distress/Anguish 8. Fear/Terror 9. Shame/Humiliation.
This video consists of 9 individual characters which are crossbreeds of organic and synthetic elements.
Each character represent one of Tomkins Affects in no particular order.
They are bound together by different external expressions which also can be seen as a form of communication.
They are being observed by a dog named Sharik from whom the viewer see the perspective.
It is also inspired by the idea of the "wasp and the orchid" as described by Gillez Deleuze and Felix Guattari in the book ” a thousand plateaus”, and especially the concept of multiplicity and rhizome.

In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as "Wonderful London". Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time.
