    Season's Greetings and best wishes from The Glasgow School of Art for 2014. This year's seasonal e-card comes from alumnus James Houston. James graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2008 with a first class degree in Visual Communication. He works in Glasgow as a moving image maker. http://www.1030.co.uk The ensemble: A collection of vintage Mac computers, a Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum + 1 and a SEGA Mega Drive perform a rendition of "Carol of the Bells" with lyrics re-written by Robert Florence & Philip Larkin in the Mackintosh Library at The Glasgow School of Art. Jacket by Ten30.co.uk (Alan Moore, GSA Textiles alumnus 2008). James aimed to create a piece of Christmas music by appropriating past Christmas gifts. "I discovered that a few had the capability for speech synthesis so the obvious next step was to figure out how to assemble a choir." he said. "This is a process which is based on the last piece of work I did as a student at GSA." (See James' Degree Show film - Big Ideas (Don't Get Any). Lyrics: HAIL THE MACHINES SWEET OLD MACHINES

          DESCRIPTION TE2/0000/18 Activity in Mackintosh Building studios showing numerous students making preparations for sculptures erected in Tape 16. Tape quality poor at the beginning but fine afterwards. Shots of students constructing sculptures in studios, seem to be mock-ups of the larger ones. Lattice frame shown being assembled. Shot of a man smoking a pipe in the studios, music at various points including Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence and someone playing a flute (?). Shots of students measuring out fabric for the sculpture shown in Tape 16. The same workshop is shown as in 17, with shots of wood (presumably for the lattice frame) being cut on a table saw. There are more shots of the man with pole and tyre (as in 17). Scottish, English and American accents are heard at times. Again, the film is well shot and edited, with plenty of views from above (presumably from balconies), zooms and camera movement throughout. Ends where tape 17 begins, suggests chronology of Tape 18 followed by 17 and then 16. While it’s clear this is a project initiated by the Architecture Department in Glasgow School of Art, it remains to be researched. Architect Andy McMillan is instantly recognisable and the project takes place before the refectory extension was added to the Newbery Building both demolished in 2012.

            DESCRIPTION TE2/0000/17 Very short tape showing a group of students in Studio 32 (?) in the Mackintosh Building, working on what appears to be preparation for the activities shown in Tape 16. Begins with shots from above of students talking, one is carrying a tyre and a scaffolding pole. Cuts to group of around 10 students who appear to be attaching fabric to the floor. Cuts to man making a saddle-esque sculpture in a workshop, talking as he works. Plenty of camera movement with close-ups and zooms throughout. While it’s clear this is a project initiated by the Architecture Department in Glasgow School of Art, it remains to be researched. Architect Andy McMillan is instantly recognisable and the project takes place before the refectory extension was added to the Newbery Building both demolished in 2012.

              DESCRIPTION TE2/0000/16 A group of students constructs two large architectural sculptures between buildings on the Glasgow School of Art campus. Tape begins with abstract shots of what looks to be a window-frame, momentary cut to man playing guitar (taped over?). Shots of students constructing a large sculpture with some kind of semi-transparent fabric, between the Newbery Tower and Foulis Building, soft rock playing in the background. Shots from the Mackintosh Building steps and aerial shot, presumably from the top of the Mackintosh. Sequence showing the construction of second sculpture, using a wooden lattice structure, in front of the Newbery. The structure is shaped like a saddle and there is a man who seems to be a tutor directing operations, with perhaps 20 students helping. There are shots of posters on boards in front of the buildings, including one for the GFT. At the end of the film the lattice sculpture is moved to Garnethill park. The film is well shot and edited, with an appreciation of the sculptural forms depicted. While it’s clear this is a project initiated by the Architecture Department in Glasgow School of Art, it remains to be researched. Architect Andy McMillan is instantly recognisable and the project takes place before the refectory extension was added to the Newbery Building both demolished in 2012.
