hello this is the podcast that explores aspects assigned an image based cultural production and their wider implications I'm the host and creator Paul the pliers as this is episode thirty one and it's being released on the thirty first of October I thought I'd do a Halloween spectacular focusing on the story behind one of the most iconic faces of fright building on the last episode on the little stranger that went into the paranormal and adaptation this time but go back to where it all began with Mary Shelley's eighteen eighteen novel Frankenstein or the modern Prometheus and its impact on film and visual culture via theatre mainly focusing on the nineteen thirty one universal pictures classic Frankenstein is a story about a budding scientist who is consumed with the notion of creating life in nontraditional ways and in doing so brings but mass destruction Victor Frankenstein is the ultimate dead beat dads he abandons the creature he toiled so hard to create art of the detritus of tasks deeming the creature as a grotesque abomination Frankenstein refuses to face his responsibility for bringing it into the world the creatures monstrous behavior is incited by continual for Hammond to rejection in response to his gruesome appearance in physicality has life is so miserable that he fights to destroy his creator by killing his loved ones and wearing him dying over an arduous GS merry called when was a young woman of nineteen when she first conceived the story during the summer teen sixteen around that time she experienced various family debts including of her half sister funny and her first child with her lover Percy by Shelley whom she married later that year after his wife took her own life Frankenstein can be read as a family drama centering on a lack of parental nurture while their prime richer baby was dying Percy Shelley Galavant it with merry stepsister Claire Clairmont history also so involves the failure of communication and mutual support and the death of the gentlest most vulnerable members of a family name in this sense depict can be read as an imaginative re working of the author's left experience that is subjective allegory history originated when merry called when and Percy Shelley spent an unseasonably cold summer in Geneva Switzerland in eighteen sixteen with Claire Clairmont Lord Byron and John Polidori he published the first English language vampire story to from peer based on the TLC hard when traveling in the Balkans stuck indoors the group held a ghost story competition Godwin's ideas apparently developed from conversations about three contemporanea scientific proposals aimed at tackling the problem of violence and violence and being a skill if medical philosophy following the belief that non nothing and today's lack the vital spark or sold possessed by living organisms empirical scientific evidence has since the early nineteenth century superseded such ideas the proposals the group discussed where Rasmus Darwin's hypothesis that single celled parasites generates spontaneously the corpses could be restored using a galvanic battery and the third suggested reconstructing a body to be reanimated these romantics with a capital R. so these ideas as scope for county and lighten and soft tyre Mary Shelley herself engaged in the adaptation process for Frankenstein when she published a revised version in either team's thirty one and which narrative details are changed and some awkward writing and praised literary critic mired in Butler states in the Oxford reprint of the first taxed that the eighteen eighteen version is the more important and serious spec calling it a pioneering work of science fiction Butler also discusses Shelley's own knowledge of the works function %HESITATION position pointing out that in Shelley's preface to the eighteen thirty one reservation she contends quote with many signs that her tax originated and sophisticated satirical conversations which traded the gothic historically as a symptom of the feudal mentality and dusty occasion for a modern critical appropriation above all her action turns on the classically comic motive of the protagonists incompetence on quote Shelley appropriated the scientific thinking of her day and a heart wrenching S. grisly dramas that ultimately sends the message that love and being loved are all that matter in addition to this I college I used to reading by placing different versions of the story within their own contacts we can consider the story of Frankenstein as a malleable allegory reinterpreted both for each new generation and place of production throughout the rest of the nineteenth century there were many theatrical adaptations of the story and the film versions that led to the creatures globally recognizable iconography our doctors from the performance dramas rather than either version of the source taxed the first phone to stem from the east that we know of was made by Thomas Edison's company and a ride to nineteen ten and such silent era compressions verbal language is lost and fever of tableau depictions alongside the emergence and rice of synchronize signed and sent him out more talkies in the late nineteen twenties the studio systems in Hollywood which has come to dominate the global market by then we're beginning to forge marketable genres many genres and styles of filmmaking developed from the adaptation of existing stories many of which had already been me as has compressed silent one readers and cinemas first two decades from adaptations of what in the early twentieth century may have been considered low or middle priced examples of that gesture and Broadway theater the smaller studios like universal and Warner crafted for example early horror and musicals universal's nineteen thirties creatures features have injured with consistent cycles of updates including the dark universe series currently under way although it seems to have stalled a bit recently while monster movies are perhaps less respectable than hyper I. each in Austin or Shakespeare on film the universal pictures releases of adaptation psych Dracula and Frankenstein both in nineteen thirty one at least percentage pictorial realize Asians of what cinema can show the taxed cannot in the case of life imitating art a decade after the novel's initial publication Kim the park and hair martyrs and had number of William Burke and William hare work career for a purse or press erection men from Ulster he and eighteen twenty it took to murdering people and selling the bodies to Robert Knox one of the pioneers of anatomical study and teaching and the ticket is on clearer Frankenstein finds his supplies of body parts the nineteen thirty one film directed by James whale fills the blank by showing the nine named Henry Frankenstein played by Colin Clive and his accomplice Fritz played by Dwight Frye he also played around field and Dracula the same year retrieving the body of a hiring to mind and deter Fritz stating the wrong type of pre and from an anatomy lecture auditorium just on that name change and the universal film Victor Frankenstein has been given the first name of Victor's friend and then awful Henry clerical while his name has been transferred to a fiance Alyssa best friend Victor Moritz in the film and a love triangle between them and the less effective March is she is played by Mike Clark perhaps the irony of the connotations of the name are transferred as Henry is triumphant at the end of the film will factor laces site on Elizabeth that Fritz destroys the normal brand and must stand still the abnormal or criminal brain raises the issue of eugenics the belief that better human beings can be produced from selective breeding also notable here is sat Frankenstein senses servant to carry out the theft on his behalf he transfers to crime to human specimen lesser than himself in terms of class education and appearance frets as a hunchback while Henry is present degree of roping he directs frets his criminal activities are mediated by his servant absolving him of direct involvement in criminality it's notable does that Henry also passes on his romantic and familial responsibilities to Victor he never looks after Elisabeth himself Fritz and Henry and body the differences or lack there rose between normal and criminal brands the brands to generate characteristics as Henry picked sent banks a question of the characteristics of his and France's brilliance as they seem to have no ethical or moral compass and no empathy for fellow humans the notion of the line of thought coined as eugenics and the late nineteenth century first emerged with the ancient Greeks Shelley knew her Greek myths adding her fictional scientists about pantheon of gods ironically though Prometheus means for thought that love what Shelley's eponymous doctor has this is likely because the romantics saw Prometheus as a figure he strived so hard for improvements in human life he often over reached with unintended negative consequences Frankenstein mirrors but also sits in tension with the Greek Titans other traits Prometheus created a man from clay and to fight the chords by stealing fire for which she was severely punished he is highly intelligent champions human kind and give them the resources that enabled their progress Frankenstein fancies himself as a modern Prometheus updated in the nineteen thirty one film as Henry saying now I know what it feels like to be called meaning the cost of monotheistic Christianity he created a defined burst but the creation does not here to the plan like humans depicted and religious to acts such as the Christian Bible the creation wants to determine its own life and destiny like the floods the solution to combat its disobedience is to destroy the experiments Henry it's not so much punished for his blasphemy but is taught some humility and convinced of the proper order of things by the end he is absolved and forgiven by his family and Tignes folk even though they suffered because of his hubristic and short sighted vanity projects zero eight Henry claims to be perfectly sane it is his morals the need to be questions the fact that few do you question them under one person Dr Waldman who does is killed and it certainly faia Henry's negligence is troubling given the Frankenstein families high social standing his father is a Baron Henry's ability to get away unpunished on questions and on ski it's with his disregard for the consequences of his actions it's evidently dying to his privilege and social status another example of how I found even when compressing and changing and novels narrative can also redress its emissions occurs in the pivotal scene of the creatures animation and Shelley's tax this scene is sketch basically and vaguely and one short paragraph here is the eighteen eighteen version and which Victor Frankenstein the kind stay experience making it seem like a supernatural phenomenon it was on a jury every night in November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils with an anxiety that almost a mind to tie Kinney I collected the instruments of life around me that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet it was already one in the morning the rand powdered dismally against the peons and my condo was nearly burned to each plan by the glamour of the half extinguish lights I saw the total yellow hi if the creature opened it breathed hard and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs when the film takes over the role of narrator the V. Jill spectacle is privileged what matters is the audience's reaction and engagement and the wonder and horror erupting into life as a witness and wheels film we also witnessed the emerging trademarks of a franchise and the spectacle of horror that would excite the audience who've been for warned of the spectacular reanimation by the address at the film's opening the framing device such as a actor Edward found Sloan who plays Henry's mentor Dr Waldman onstage cautioning the fears on harder to come is identified as a method of adjustment and adaptation studies and an instance of expansion and a story that has otherwise been compressed and shifted to have big time yet it does in a way reflect the bank's own framing device as a story related by Walton the arctic explorer and letters to his sister understaffed %HESITATION Xing the epistolary narrative presentation the problem stoker waited out for Dracula later in the nineteenth century a film like Frankenstein can be considered as a hybrid adaptation and that it departs from the original but remains treatise on authorized later versions the animation scene became so pivotal and theatrical and cinematic treatments of the story because it bears the most potential for drama thrills suspense and visual spectacle while retaining the strangeness of its original description what is so spectacular about this first feature length film of the story as such the reanimation is dependent on electric charge as of course is cinnamon as Thomas each point site in his pick adaptation and its discontents films about reincarnation are often themselves reincarnations monsters and medicine carnations that can never really die whale's Frankenstein is an example of a tax that goes beyond adjustment on instead revises the source taxed mysteries are transposed and changes are made for the purposes of re contextualize ation films like Wales based on the nineteenth century gothic fiction re write the stories and rather than denigrating the pics the films on one level and getting critical assessments of them an introductory framing device is also present in the sequel to bride of Frankenstein released in nineteen thirty five and also directed by we'll this time it is free and this merry Shelly narrating the story to Percy Shelley Lord Byron this film is a revision of volume two of the pick and which the creature relates this tale of how he learns language and desires a mate of his own kind Elsa Lancaster plays both Mary Shelley and the creatures meant he is animated and the finale and credited simply as a question mark and the closing credits which is the same as the creature and the opening credits of Frankenstein and similar to the a name of a creature they said in the first theatrical production in eighteen twenty three while there is long understates conflation between Frankenstein and his creature the bride of Frankenstein does this with the author and her creation both the story and defeated brides the story is re contextualized in the sense that Shelley's novel was anti scientific warning of the dangers of meddling too much with the natural order and based on medical research in Europe at the time and nineteen thirties Hollywood there was a fascination with scientific discovery pushing the limits of possibility and of course use an artificial life for becoming demands and obsessions already intense full time the film's irony lies in the fact that dialogue could not be heard but the articulate voice the creature develops in the bank never emerges just a monstrous grown fashioned by actor Boris Karloff in the first film and spar statements in the second in many ways the creature reflects the nature of sentiment thinking again about his story and film as allegory the themes in Frankenstein and create ostracism of of being perceived as a deviantart cider technological innovation first this is supernatural and morally ambiguous monsters and victims it's hard to tell which is which and theatrical productions from as early as eighteen twenty three the monster was voiceless and infantile wild Frankenstein surf and frets he goads the creature with others the creatures innocence and sense of morality and justice arm up to fight on the implied fears empathy grows as we witnessed him being tortured by the idiotic and contemptuous frets political reading suggests that the creature personifies violent radicalism while the inept liberal politician who unleashed problems is helpless against them it is natural then that when transferred to cinema the creature symbolism would become equally relevant to the medium as well as T. I. she's in contemporary society and sentiment dad passed moments and people are revived reanimated made on dad's like sentiment the creature is the product of technological innovation and experimentation like a film tax to creature comprises still fragments spliced together to form a whole entity that is given movement that is scientifically explicable it seems to many of us like magic and develops a life of its own I do for each of its creators thinking here by the film's capacity for reply and the legacy in popular culture of the film and its characters their iconography remains classical must developing along with the contemporary like sentiment in mute creature one way or another finds its voice his existence is given a degree of immortality adaptations ensure the survival of characters like him the cinematic nature islands the interchangeable idia Frankenstein with his creation are communicated visually in the nineteen thirty one films finale noted Plato episode nineteen twenty seven play by Peggy Webb playing from which this film is directly adopted that first gave the name Frankenstein to the creature after his maker directly linking their fractured and merry Chang identities a sequence in the film that signify says is one in much detail at first race face each other through the turning mechanism of %HESITATION when males interior as light passes three it's and casts on Karloff's creature it looks like a film projector while the divisions and the spending mechanism resemble individual film frames passing through the machinery the sequence cuts back and forth between close ups of the two faces seeing each other through the wheel and the shots the film evokes sentiments even nation from already moving image devices such as the Jewish trope and C. praxis scope as it faces almost planned to gather in the rapid sequencing and a wide shot of the Moabites site the milk they L. there is a merger but it is unclear who they're pointing up at as the river shot shows both Henry and the creature when the scuffle seems to be over with Henry the apparent factor that he's alive exclamation as repeated further converging the creator and his progeny the final sequences of the film are perhaps where it deviates most from the novel rather than driving Frankenstein tear torturous deaths the creature instead meets a tragic end and the fire sacked by the angry Lynch mob formed after he accidentally joins that'll Maria and exemplary moment of blame culture and racial prejudice the mop violently chased him to his fiery death of course he isn't quite dead and as a precursor to all such cinematic undead murderous phantoms returns for more in the sequel the images at the film's climax have much to say about eight thirty nineteen thirty CSA as well as what could be shown and pre Hayes code Hollywood the film may be set vaguely in central Europe but the issues are prevalent in north American society and politics the disused mill is the site of Frankenstein's lab on the creatures birthplace the young thinking mob and the urgency to kill the thing they do not understand burn dine this place if industry science and creation the fire spreading up the windmill shown and a long shot invokes the cross burning K. Klux Klan under violent persecution of African Americans the times folks who need little evidence thought or discussion to form of vigilante Lynch mob not to capture but to kill the creature reflects real intolerance and serious violence against those of third and society notably Henry feels the idea of exterminating the creature is murder but has no qualms about taking bodies and creating a life from parts of cadavers it is only after the creatures attempt to communicate with a less oppress the Henry grace T. and seats the lynching on the wedding date the cried celebrating the heteronormative upper class union quickly become defense full mop without considering the issues at stake the death of the young girl is caused by the combination of the naive creature and both their negligent fathers with an absence of mothers both Maria and the creature are innocent children she shows him kindness but he used to be infantile to know his own strength and possesses no language yet her father and the Chinese people decide that the dry and Maria was murdered with a question or investigation no one take self responsibility it is perfectly possible that she could have trying to applying a loan why has a child for each living so close to water where she's allowed to play alone never been taught to swim there is no evidence of the creature or in fact any kind of unknown assailants no one checks the girl for cause of death no one questioned her father who walks through the time carrying her lifeless body no one blames Henry as the creator of the creature and he certainly doesn't blame himself the comment times tracks back from Henry showing his lack of responsibility for the life he created and hi it's resistance to maltreatment pits the times people and his loved ones in danger the camera also tracks back when the creature goes for Elisabeth suggesting that the lack of responsibility is also experienced by the film's implicit narrator and by extension the audience returning to the family narratives the nineteen twenties and thirties and Hollywood so increasing interest in psychoanalysis and the Frankenstein creature dynamic couldn't be more easy to pull in the film the creature takes a shine to Elizabeth Henry Frankenstein's fiancee if Frankenstein is the creatures father than Elizabeth is at least the step mother to baby and this operation of life making if we take Shelly as the creatures mother and another sense than else along casters to roll a Shelley and the bride to page the analogy even further he tries to do away with his father to find happiness with his mother and the pics though the creature kills Elisabeth on the wedding night to make factor suffer the Hollywood version sees Elizabeth surviving as a price for Henry and his means to create a son of natural births this correction of Henry's behavior reduces the potential queerness of Frankenstein's relationship with his creation for much of the film Frankenstein is immersed in the homo social world of body snatching and scientific experimentation we learned early on from Melissa best conversation with family friend Victor Henry's experiments began after their engagement he uses his work to resist heteronormative domesticity marriage an undertaking familiar two days namely producing a male heir to carry on the family Snowblind at least in what is regarded as the natural way his resistance to committing to your woman and the social mores of its class perhaps indicates homosexuality or at least a preference for self pleasure he spends more time with friends and allies the best and he cannot create the creature alone and the fact it has two fathers both of him abuse and neglect him Henry sexuality is further cleared and debased and the creatures animation the raw materials for the manufactured sun rise through a hole in the roof at the top of the mills tar a lightning storm creates a frenzied climax and Henry repeatedly exclaims it's alive all the actions to create life combine and exert of performance and Henry serenity after the animation is almost post coital the creation manifests an anxiety over women biological conception and birth thing that is women sleeper and place in society the depicted home a social world of science and effective of the tournament progeny for the heights of Frankenstein must be if woman born the meal %HESITATION night mother this creation of life is seen as a poor aunt and unnatural this gives rise to the abuse of the creature showing high it becomes monstrous he is the progeny of what is viewed as an unnatural union and the silenced victim of domestic abuse provoked into defensive actions that scene and a blinkered way make him seem inherently violent mostly because he cannot communicate his experiences that is not to say that no one is willing to try and isn't very it knows the creature is inherently goods and does not fear him Elizabeth also senses something amiss on her wedding day but she does not share the child's lack of fear of difference even if she could articulate her intuition Henry is unwilling to lessen unlocks for sites and a sense of responsibility he finished he locks her in with the danger of safety in company but the creature decides not to harm her he has not yet become vindictive the importance of the story Frankenstein and its impact on culture should not be underestimated on the bicentenary of the novel's first publication this is an endearing story and symbol of the risks of human achievement and the darkest recesses of human nature not only that but merry wells and craft Shelley Nagel it when the daughter of an early feminist activist long before such a thing was a notion at just twenty years old give us a story if you press desk grief and destruction that not only spawned a life of its own but the science fiction genre and influences across media she could never have anticipated I hope some of these ideas cause a

like the lecture here CCA we have exhibitions public programs the decent publishing makes decisions we do all sorts of things we went with us is from Northern Ireland and sensational peas we've taking have fakes on sporting matching practice they do that by really trusting us essentially saying ideas that could happen much with them to make them happen that takes center open Roman would you like to introduce yourself red robin on with this class is based in Belfast you should see it on your show as escape sequence yeah that's a coding term business right this is an escape sequence a sequence of characters that come represent themselves directly sometimes you want to use your use special characters so you have to put in more special characters tell compiled to ignore one thing and do another thing that it related to my practices lotus caves in in the workers in the show so comes from a desire to sort of escape reality to some degree stuff work except that and Martin says well that's not something you're trying to support here Catherine at CCA how do you feel very emerging emergence I suppose you could be an issue for nineteen for the I think this is not something I and we really consider fine get hung up on you making work and you've got opportunities just keep playing the game of transit at the make things contingent on are they getting funding location friend think what can I do for a horticulture and then if something does come of it how can I scale it I think all the time you just making work you winning it's an unusual stuff focus too much on the outcome and make it about an outcome I want to make it work for us not and that's really a productive this could happen in the document in order to have a good bench to contents in some cases you should put that make up our phones been a participant or need to have these things ready for something to come out of it it's more conventional keep making work zones one way fifteen whatever scale you get from the machine to simple sending it to you without programs he is B. exhibitions program take care thanks bye Dietz of questions and it's a cumulative experience say each show is looking at different aspects of the sets of ideas of questions and China have different rhythms going through thick projects as well say combination of sedation ETS increase chases different scales and to create something that people he'd come to us regularly they can see each shape can have this kind of experience the gap is saves that season but at the same time each day is completely unique and it's a complete thing in its own right say this year we'll see how much incessant CD eight in the second thing was time will tell us that each of the exhibitions for me to return he began with the idea of how the passage of time is taking effect for evidence of ways he spend time we've had two shows already in the season and I invited robin office seeing his left the state and some thinking about recreation and escape and ends that was the starting point and then it's become this completes type units and it's I kind of said they showed up in seconds the last five years that is really nice to be able to bring it together and

creams say it was just a scan for it they're our neighbors up says with very kinds and lets us board up the windows that we could just ten our society into a blank canvas for speed pretty great yeah yeah there's an element and I guess it's you're turning on the head the idea of public arts a little bit could be handing it over to the public a little bit and it's very visible from the Derry walls safe and did they give you a bit of a community feel when you get past people passing and I suppose it you must be capturing terrorists and so this time of the year with their Halloween festival coming futurists yes the Spanish yes Sir can from where I live kinda on the side the it's you know so it's M. may see it's being families with the kids during the during a yeah sort of some of them

go to the referral and yes it's being them and some people just making shapes which would be some of my favorites such U. S. kind of the %HESITATION taking along for a look that that line is laser on a building and it's huge while to come back said the idea of time passing time is continually passing and %HESITATION hi we spend %HESITATION passing time and just to get into what's actually in the exhibition as well it's not just human time being passed it's a long time it's been passer in Durham you were made for the exhibition the school feeling about the state and the cat ready for a number he's got a residence in Amsterdam with %HESITATION I was basically cat sitting for %HESITATION not sent to the and he's carried into a place plan because they were estimated completeness and it's been itching at this instant bills some kind of automated please play insulation please and what was your help support can't raise put this to rest together in your head you come back down from the start I have to find a way of making this physical and ethical and yes about three months ago the state unable to skate it unfolds you can fit in your car you can carry around city tickets contest that it states on account right second one so I was taking around Belfast two a number of different places have cats and just put me on the street enjoyed it plays cat music because we can hear in the background %HESITATION by composer David tie in to it with and %HESITATION behaviorists to work out what frequencies cats find relaxing and then into specified place nineties right James already like what it plays back the videos of the cat raves the phone is of mixed today use using the same techniques I would've done VS garrison visuals in March of this kind of time together a number of different strands of my credit card to send my love of cats it's call laces in the topics that sort of message content kits for cameras and you can you can control the fire nor the maybe it's just that simple right about yeah so the best can't raise any gallery to ping pong table which is four thousand entities on the first of all the companies with senses that triangulate where the ball hit save that came out was to make sure escrita speech Johnson that thing from table to coach nine years ago the seven at the at the cultural integration where that data is going to lead us to %HESITATION indispensable instructs it pretty often that was yeah that's the kind of work I really like the gigantic inflatable confused ahead for the public just double down on his brilliant and Jim Wright said his many head injuries is is from the a copy of the the local one his his predates the office he did the fitness center they have a certain side by side yes that's the first one but we were on the big ones it's been a big one say you think okay okay and I was looking to get it's scaled down I did like the first versions fifteen entities in test cricket in fact I got my first thoughts comes around to second one just slightly upgraded and upgraded to nursing it folds up runs around if you switch on switch messages to be they got a three foot work from which festival which was sent from two into the regulation should have with the slight risk people McCarron trying to see themselves reflected back to what they want to do with their action in insulation for work I have a sense works this one rule standing very still sat very still it says traces of American saying that if you the closer you see yourself in this narcissistic seriously making these pathways and the other one is yeah yes Makedonski right that sounds or because it says seven of the last five years with coding and this I think got returned carry free a lot of the code he's been reused says of his most of retracing the motion of waves on motions of in plane catches in the way that worked in different systems and ending up spending time studying this kitchen is replacing them in the street for pricing back into the work say in that run through this one yeah it's great the support kid friendly the Terrigen adults to think is the way one of the ways that surround themselves to play with each other and see if the grass might need to move toward one state is trying to create an atmosphere should be one of the nice things about doing a project outside models and really read playful yeah with it was reviewed some of the tax thirty well with the cats and there's something about eight actually trying to bring up your case and bringing about the end of the day yeah the gold okay and the idea was always to build structures that have cameras built into it automatically apply you can't related content the internet with them yes by the end of the status of Christmas cat related feedback loop people that live networks and services and %HESITATION just get back to the nineties state media you take care of it happened in the seven X. yes Sir it's been tends to be booked for the SPCA in Dublin even next year the big cat shelters biggest cash up front and it is open to the public and we're gonna put the put the sculpture in that for the kittens on the live stream it with our help and find that yeah I don't remember and if it's not yeah that's the problem yeah it's a fascinating area I'm just thinking of by and hi you know our mobile phones are just so much a part of us with the coming inside works because they're just part of who we are nice and everything seems so easy on them but of course there's this behind the scenes really complicated network of lots of different colors and stuff and information and junk as well E. Duncan things I mean do you think your show rains up to life events as the license or I mean this is this looks in it I think there's always a tension I mean how much to reveal yeah of the technology success I will waive he is also upset where formula because if you just run a magic %HESITATION C. wants to hide the ball was in the senses and just make it with and it didn't it didn't require the latest code intervention I think now mmhm for B. as interested in in presenting the technologies of examining heresies but in reality that in the show I think there's a lot of currency in doing that I'm just still happy in this particular case of playing with the idea but it it runs on much of the I think yeah I would the police report if I did that was the technology is very much on display there's no point hiding under his desk popular it's the other way of talking and saying okay support during the war what size for a table for the second one is that it just runs out on the latest stuff so if you get on TV which is cable city yeah I guess yes is is that looking hold on yeah do you want to see send anything about your previous work things demethylation market was C. matching air pollution it took a few projects which was an activation %HESITATION experiment so please so I had a at the July payment to those hooked up to a condition census eight not again a few and printed it was later spent any dis laughter yoga I've done a residency right in your own city I projects around occasional didn't know what form it would take originally was going to be so so around sound and sort of mapping because there was the medium for the pollution and for the sounds of recording in different spaces Dr academic I couldn't in the end fine cut on your staff to collaborate with scientists and it is a way of making a photographic places worth having super quick how come you should plan to them but the community art projects working with this flight package with kids where they were during the late the image and sit and slide into place the image back line by line the TEKLYNX version you get the kids to walk very slowly with a lot pension fund investment rules what they've added drawn into the space and you see the average potentially appear in the finder on the back of the camera man that happens like a magic trick and they will get ready sauce for me like it before we get the same effects with the scientists in the snow already gets light painting loans version photography into this to see it coming in front of them and luckily yeah that works when tried at first time in Delhi the ministers of recruit enough permit scientists to make the project with Wallace is by the way it's going to take the images and I was able to repeat it in Mexico and Nairobi and Uganda and I'm just just about to go off to Ethiopia and of next month can do more with it that works is if the artist conceptions making it look as if they had been put under a microscope and it's up to it draws in more points of lights represent possible speculation the end of this fiscal record with images that you can surf contest is both looking at me to see the different professionals
