Celestial | 15:25
Taking the form of an experimental portrait, Celestial explores the poetry of the sky, a space of fascination and contemplation.
Can't Sleep | 00:48
Can't Sleep (2006) is an abstraction of language and power dynamics. Depicted is a short silent dialogue that explores social and political motivations through role-play. The situation is familiar, prompting the viewer to fill-in the identities and context of the neutral parties.
Tumbleweeds in London | 8:30
The Performance Artist, Claire Blundell Jones, in collaboration with filmmaker Ed presents a narrative short film about Tumbleweed Girl, a protagonist anti-hero who walks across London escorting a tumbleweed with a leaf blower.
SOUND NOMADS Performance #3: Black Balloons | 4:26
Deserts as environments of extreme heat may cause serious stresses and fragilities in different manners. Vulnerability and eternal un-breakables are contrasted in Black Balloons. The imagery of balloons and cactuses side by side creates a love-hate relationship, with dangerous consequences.
Test Phantom | 5:03
This piece touches on themes of intimacy, memory and desire using a short monologue about an anonymous sexual experience. A fractured voice-over is counterpointed with imagery taken from archive films.
Cobweb | 3:13
This contemplative piece was filmed in an abandoned GDR Fairground in Berlin. A signifier of the passage of time, the debris-covered cobweb blows gracefully in the breeze.
Puddle Drawing | 0:16
Puddle Drawing plays into the hands of chance. Rolls of pharmacy stickers are discovered in a puddle, remarkably adopting the form of a film roll. Puddle Drawing co-exists between the stillness of a photograph and the moving image of a film.
