Very pleased that recent video work Auroville Dream (Tales From the City)has been selected for Altered States curated by Toby Tatum and Mark French as part of this year’s Coastal Currents Festival Hastings & St Leonards, UK.
Altered States is an immersive multi-screen show of the latest experimental film and video work curated by the Hastings-based filmmakers Toby Tatum and Mark French. Altered States features moving image by over seventy of the most fascinating international moving image practitioners working today, much of it unseen in the UK.
This exhibition includes the fruits of a worldwide search for works that articulate film’s power to initiate heightened states of consciousness, transporting us across the threshold into a mind-expanding visionary state. The programme features a selection of cutting edge films that imaginatively reshape the base materials of the everyday world into something rich and strange.

Curated and produced by artist Tom McGinn, the exhibition examines the tensions and (dis-) continuities between video and sculpture, and the varying demands they make of their audiences.
Drawing comparisons to our daily, collective engagement with both the virtual and the physical, many of the works in the show foreground the material importance of the screen, as a device for communicating lived, bodily experience, and as a site for the sharing of knowledge via the ‘common’ language of images.
The fifth edition of the Festival will take place at the Schusev State Museum of Architecture, Moscow, Russia, April 21 – June 21, 2015. Space is a philisophical category as well as our everyday routhine and the basic concept of architecture. Artists turn to the architecture of the present, projects of the future and runins of the past. They explore a space that exists in the relationship with time and a space as an expansion and dimension; personal space and the space of the ‘other’.
This year the festival has received 1046 applications from 67 countries.
Here is a selection of test A4 printouts of images from Kinetic Collage project via my desktop printer plus 1 x A3 archival on Somerset paper. I’m testing out how large the images can go as each image has varying resolution.
