Last year screendance artist Katrina McPherson asked Owa Barua, Natalia Barua and me to be involved in a project that explored ideas to do with archives, memory, dance and film. We ended up making We Record Ourselves.
These last few weeks we’ve been working on an edit to be screened on the MediaWall at Bath Spa University starting on 8 June 2017.
This is a new version of We Record Ourselves specially edited for the Bath Spa MediaWall. The edit sustains the key themes of the original versions (remembering, forgetting, archives and dance) while exploring the possibilities of the scale of the MediaWall and the transient nature of its audiences.
The MediaWall edit is below but watching it here won’t be quite the same as the full scale version (10m high, 3m wide)!
And here’s an image of the work installed at Bath Spa:
