ALTERNATING CURRENT

MULTIMEDIA ARTWORK

MUSIC, PHOTOGRAPHY AND EXPERIMENTAL FILM

2013

A love letter to electricity in 9 parts, Conflux Coldwell's Alternating Current brings together, through multi-modal improvisation, the many different strands of Coldwell's work. The music was improvised as a response to the photographs and film, which in turn were the result of improvisation and happenstance, a fleeting moment captured electronically.

HIDDEN ABOVE

PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES

2013

The central theme for the “Space” aspect of this MA brief, entitled Hidden Above, arose from preliminary research conducted using Google Maps. I was looking for secreted areas in Leeds city centre I had yet to explore and photograph; a relative challenge considering the fact that I’ve been making such excursions in the area for nearly ten years. A “flâneur” type approach at this stage would simply lead me back down well-trodden paths, so I opted for a more premeditated infiltration. Viewing the city from above, I had a realisation; a large percentage of Leeds’s outdoor surface area had gone unexplored – the rooftops.

PRAXIS

DOCUMENTARY FILM

2013

Praxis is a film about the creative process. In a way, It is also a film about the making of itself. Shot and edited by members of the Urban Exploration Collective in 2013, it was made both as a vehicle for the creation of new art and music by the group, and as a document of their strange ways of working. For UE the process of investigation is vital. Whether they are making field recordings in derelict factories, improvising music from the sound of a dying piano or VJing with circuit bent televisions, Urban Exploration are always hunting out new ways of making noise and pictures.
