Junction Residency November 2011
After a heated early morning discussion (still unresolved) about whether we should keep the title of the piece as Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice - officially still only our ‘working title’ - we began the morning’s session working on the first scene of Part One, taking up from where we left off the day before. Caroline arrived shortly after and set up her sound dock, after which we began to work on Part Two: Dawn. Susanne arrived excited about having finally watched 2001 A Space Odyssey. We talked at length about the beauty of the film and whether we may come even close to what it achieves in the work we are doing. We hope, on some level, we will one day. Susanne also brought us a gift (see picture).
Dan Dare - the game of the future - a thrilling journey into space!
Other films discussed today were Dogville (particularly for Part Two: Dawn) and Out of the Present.
Also discussed Tacita Dean (for a great article about the artists go to The New Yorker's http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/10/31/111031fa_fact_eakin) and Felicity Powell’s show at the Wellcome Collection on charms and objects (http://www.wellcomecollection.org/whats-on/exhibitions/charmed-life.aspx)
