Summoning Ghosts of Industries Past
Full of Noises Festival, Barrow-in-Furness
This performance was one amongst a big line-up of artists so there was strict time limit, which led to urgency in my movements. Afterwards someone in the audience told me that they had previously worked as a film editor and the actions I carried out with film, such as draping it around my neck, reminded them of their work in the cutting room. Aine O'Dwyer wrote a short piece about her experience of the performance for The Wire magazine.
A conversation with a former film editor to discuss her experience of the cutting rooms and how it relates to seeing Film as Fabric at Full of Noises in 2015
