Video Poems 2010-11 [Lost And Found] (2011)

9 min 33 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

A collage of material drawn from American televison shows alternates with artefacts of the analogue broadcasting era. TV source material includes interviews with sportspeople and celebrities, while the artefacts include technological markers such as colour bars, and intertitles (which hold the space until the resumption of scheduled broadcasting) and signal dropout.

The selection of Video Poems concludes with an extended silent image of a grey, pock marked circle, suggesting the moon, but generated by analogue imaging technology.
