Flicker (2016)

Single-channel video with sound (8'51"), data projector, colour scroll strobe, mobile phones, performers, microphone.

Kim Coleman and Matthew Noel-Tod

 

Projected video depicts an illuminated living space.  A colour-strobe affects and interrupts the video, it's brightness violently illuminating the entire event space. Mobile phones are dropped intermittently. 

 

The work was an response to Ian White and his performance IBIZA: A Reading for 'The Flicker (2008).  Ian's work - and this work-  incorporate Tony Conrad’s Flicker Film (1966).

 

Flicker was created for Here Is Information: Mobilise an event celebrating Ian White held at The Showroom, London.
