Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


A series of three, eight-minute films + introductory text reflecting artistic process in process. In this context, process is considered as more than a sequence of linear steps (the 'processional'). Instead, a number of disparate processes are considered in terms of their reciprocal impact. Process then becomes an inter-disciplinary matrix, and emerges as the 'stuff' or subject of the artwork, rather than the mechanical means of achieving the artistic end. Here, the work is addressed as being its processes, rather than simply the result of processes. Consequently, the films presented are offered as elements of the work, as opposed to 'after-the-fact' historical documents.
