Echo fold revolve

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Echo Fold Revolve (2008) is an artwork for single screen SD video with sound. Using adapted everyday objects and a combination of digital and analogue technology, the work re-imagines the ‘texture’ of early television technology from 1920's and early 1930's in Britain. The vertical patterns synonymous with the 30-line television technology invented by engineer John Logi Baird, becomes the filter through which early 20th century archive images and sounds are re-enacted. The music in the video is an adaptation of the song 'Amy’ by Horatio Nicolls arranged for voice and ‘banjulele’ written on the occasion of Amy Johnson’s solo flight from England to Australia in 1930. The work is part of The Difference Machine, a series of works for video and voice by the author that use mediated sounds and images to investigate the roles and representations of pioneering women in the assimilation of technology into culture.
