Still from The Aachen Faxes, Marie Shannon, 2012

The Aachen Faxes is a simple striking video of white text on a black background. The text is taken from a series of faxes Julian Dashper sent to his partner Marie Shannon during his Aachen residency in 1995. The soundtrack is fittingly maudlin, a lone cello played by Dashper’s brother. The video is pitch perfect; the text exquisitely weighted across the screen as though set by a typographer onto a page.
