Abstract: The work developed from Sherwin’s successful AHRB application of 2003/4 to investigate if 16mm film can be successfully adapted for presentation in the gallery. “bdpq” questions the practical and aesthetic considerations of using a printing machine as projector within a gallery space, and asks if these indicators of geometry can be viewed as the aesthetic core of the artwork. “Vowels & Consonants” asks: what is the character of optical sound that can be generated directly from the physical shapes of letters? How does that sound relate to the sounds we associate with those letterforms? The work investigates chance at many levels. The letterforms b,d,p,q, were generated on a computer and printed onto raw 16mm film without a camera. Looped projection enabled an improvisatory form of projection facilitating live interaction with musicians. Effectively turn the process of film projection into an audio / visual art-form that can interact effectively with live music performance.
