Duration: 6 hours /Dates: April/May 2017
Involved: EC Davies, Performers
Action: Performers selected a love heart balaclava and pair of washing up gloves and were filmed making different body shapes/movements.
Davies later selected 1 second of each person’s movement and removed the background. Each action was repeated on a loop and the individual figures were placed together into an animated sequence that evolved and changed over the course of Press Play and Record at Vane. Audio was produced from edits of previous voice recordings of people reading song lyrics from 2015 research events.
