    CCCitations is an offshoot of Citation City, an audiovisual performance by People Like Us peoplelikeus.org/citationcity Andrew Sharpley was given raw source footage that was used to create the new a/v performance "Citation City" by People Like Us, and was invited to create a new film from this material. There is also a second CCCitations film by Vicki Bennett with invited soundtracks by Gwilly Edmondez, Jason Willett & Jon Leidecker: https://vimeo.com/124300778 About Citation City Citation City sources, collage and edits 300 major feature films where content is either filmed or set in London – creating a story within a story, of the film world, living its life, through extraordinary times of change, to see what happens when these multiple narratives are combined… what will the story tell us that one story alone could never tell? Inspired by The Arcades Project by Walter Benjamin, this audiovisual work is created from 1000s of clippings of text and visual media, collaged using a system of “convolutes”, collated around subjects of key motifs, historical figures, social types, cultural objects from the time. By gathering and assembling such groups of similar yet unrelated, he revealed a hidden, magical encyclopaedia of affinities, a massive and labyrinthine architecture of a collective dream city. On reading Benjamin, his approach to editing astonished Vicki Bennett, and the similarity of their creative processes of cutting and collating extensive lists of subject matter by context. In the live performance a series of story lines (convolutes) sit side by side with a soundtrack sourced both from the movie content, as well as new sample compositions thematically related to the visual content.

Vicki has collected scenes from hundreds of films containing gestures or instructions, editing them together to make a 15-minute film consisting of seven chapters. Vicki invited seven artists to create a unique film score for each section. The result is a fascinating and witty reinterpretation of familiar film footage, with scenes arranged in incongruous, surprising and often very funny combinations. Gesture Piece was commissioned by Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema's digital art programme and supported using public funds by Arts Council England.
