Cycle of Purposes SR1 (excerpt) [2014]

2014 Arts Council England and Furtherfield commission, working with members of the public in a shopping centre in Sunderland as part of ‘Digital Zoo’ touring exhibition.

This piece involved volunteers participating in an hour long one to one acting session on camera. Using a process of visualizations and the acting techniqies of Sam Kogan, each person performed a 5 minute unedited take to camera. After learning specific acting techniques during the session, each participant listened to a recorded voice over narrative and performed to camera. 12 people participated. Cycle of Purposes is suite of projects using the same method in different locations.
