  2. Synopsis:
    On one side of the screen a bug writhes on the ground, most likely in the final moments of life. On the other side, a human attempts to mimic the bug’s movements, hoping to erase, if only for a moment, the constructed hierarchy of life that places humans above all else.

    Closer is an expression of the complex and various relationships that humans have with nature. At once sublime and terrifying, nature exerts a magnetic pull over humans. Yet, food and housing technology physically separates us more each day. We satisfy the desire to get closer to nature through artificial means; images of grand vistas on our computer backgrounds, faux wood grain covering our coffee tables, and taxidermied animals on our walls. Photography and video counters this by making the natural world easily accessible through images.

    Amanda Le Kline is Pennsylvania U.S.A. She graduated from Lycoming College in 2008 with her Bachelor of Arts, and from The Ohio State University in 2014 with her Master of Fine Arts. She currently lives in Columbus, Ohio where she teaches at Otterbein University.
    Kline brings an interdisciplinary approach to her artistic practice by combining the mediums of photography, video, sculpture, and performance. Her research interests come from the fields of art history, anthropology, mythology, and women and gender studies. Humor is also a very important part of her work.
    She is a member of The Page Collective, an artist collaboration group that facilitates community engagement through site-specific installations. Their work is invested in exploration, education, and research, taking the form of participatory art projects.

  5. "Filmed among the ruins of The Crystal Palace Terraces, Transmitters is a playful and poetic ode to desire".
    Directed, shot and edited by Gary Mcquiggin of Welwyn Garden City, known for his work previously with The Pheromoans, The Bomber Jackets and Deerhoof, the film recalls James Broughton's surrealist miniature The Pleasure Garden (1957).
    Using a number of the same locations, the band appear, disappear and re-appear amongst and against the modern day remains of the ruins. Mcquiggin ups the 'pleasurable strangeness' of Broughton's original with increasingly splenetic rhythmic cuts and visual non-sequiturs.
    Transmitters continues the tradition of 'the park' as a place of self-reflection and respite from urban hullabaloo, as well as a space for serious transformative experience - as seen and heard in works by artists diverse as The UV Race (Life Park), The Kinks (Village Green Preservation Society), Gary Numan (Down In The Park) and Prince (Paisley Park).
    "Stylish, funny, charming - Transmitters may be a slight film but it is by no means an inconsiderable one" (reworked excerpt from the Pleasure Garden BFI DVD booklet, Jim Cook, 2009)
