River Traces : 2020

RIVER TRACES 1 was created in collaboration with the River Frome in Bristol, by exposing samples of river sediment and algae directly onto 16mm film, and developing using eco-processing techniques such as coffee and plant developers. Physical traces are generated through a direct encounter between the material qualities of the river and the film itself, effecting both the visual and audio track. The results are combined with underwater recordings into a poetic audiovisual trace of the River Frome. This forms part of Kathy’s research at South West Creative Technology Network.

The video below is a 3:38min extract from a 9 minute 16mm projection. It is the first of a set of films exploring photograms created from sediment, particles and plant matter found in rivers.

Digital version premiered online at Mutek Festival, September 2020 and 16mm Projection with live mixed sound premiered at Centre of Gravity Exhibition as part of the BEEF programme, October 2020.
