An experimental film that delves into the pleasures, architecture, and labour of an archetypal American theme park. The film flits between fantasy, straight documentation and reconstructed events.

Performances ran throughout the evening, in which an assortment of characters enter and exit a cleaved vehicle, engage in a bizarre narrative, have lunch, and recount perverse obsessions. Public was free to engage with microphones and scripts after performances, acting out their own version of events.
Bugged under grey skies; a gentle paranoia slips and flits between domestic surfaces.
16mm double system sound, 06:34.
A hyperborean fever dream. Two figures find each other through an unnavigable early-hours space brimming with symbols and a fake tan mantra.

Berthold Lubetkin couldn't build his towers for the ground was riddled with mines.
No shining beacon of labour, for him, or for me.
Version II: all flat roofs, cheap, leaks.
A plane takes off from Shotton airfield, a thousand feet below a man punches a dog.
Back in the air, someone jumps.
Lands in a tree.
A crowd gathers, phones snap, no ladder comes.
Later that night a man is dragged from a nightclub by two men. In the car park he is assaulted, petrol, poured, set alight,
or so I’m told.
One man remarks he needs a slash… the fire is doused. Another remarks Shearer is a wanker. Everyone laughs.
Peterlee, a New Town.

A short ambient video loop to be repeated indefinitely. A locked down shot of a window is projected, and then re-captured until slight changes in aspect ratio and resolution cause the image to devolve into a flickering blue flame of video. Edit based upon a Blaise Pascal triangle I sketched and a challenge from artist Sair Goetz (the exact conditions of which are now forgotten).

A meditative breathing structure, and mockery of a home. Controlled by re-purposed coffee grinding motors and programmed with Arduino and Max/MSP. Structure responds to viewers presence with IR sensors, freezing and adjusting its forward/reversing actions dependent upon their distance.
