Testbed Archive (2006)

Leeds Metropolitan University Gallery July 2006

 

The archive was presented as part of the Testbed program in two different forms. The first was a three screen multi - projection with the archive at the centre.

As a visitor interacted with the archive films clips losely related to entries were played simultaneously either side. The film clips were combinations of my own

filmed footage and also free use source clips supplied as part of the Screen Tests Project DVD by Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska where the creative

re-use of out of copyright material is actively encouraged as a continuim of their project.

 

The second form of the archive involved the experimentation of 'clickable objects'. Material objects purchased from ebay and photographed for archive pages

such as Creme de Menthe and hot coffee plaque were set up as a wall-based display that the archive was then projected over. A user could click on any of the objects on

the shelves and its archive text would appear next to it. The selection of objects presented on the wall were the first sequential pages of the archive, resulting in each

object linking to another on the wall.
