Richard and Dianna from Nanolab and Sally Golding are here this weekend!
They're the guests of East Street Arts and Cherry Kino, who have teamed up to put on this weekend of Australian wondermental film. Sally is performing on Saturday night, and Richard and Dianna on Sunday night, both shows are at 7pm. Here's more info:
The events are Free No ticket needed, just show up!
Sally Golding (Saturday 5th November, 7pm, Patrick Studios, ESA)
Face of An Other
Obsessions with horror manifest as phantasmagoric projections onto the filmmakers own body in a bizarre accumulation of unreality. Notions of ‘projected’ identity, grotesquerie, and the uncanny are interrogated in this shifting projector alignment for face(s). Golding’s key expanded cinema work, as noted in the recent symposium on Expanded Cinema at the Tate Modern. (16mm film reel & film loop, vintage sound effects, unhinged Foley, stroboscopic lightning.)
A form of disjunctive archiving, images and sounds were contact printed from 16mm science educational films Voice of the Insect and Photons, and Golding’s home archive of classic Super8 horror and sci-fi films. Projected images are further manipulated with refracting lenses during the performance, shifting the locked rectangle of the screen. The soundtrack was made by manually sampling contacted printed waveforms and made sound graphics - a darkroom composition. (Double screen film performance. 16mm film reel and film loops, original 16mm & Super8 images, made & found waveforms, refracting lenses & filters.)
Psycho Sub Tropo
An audience of seated children react in horror and delight as a finger wags across the screen and the performers own body moves across the projectors obscuring and blending the images. A laboratory strobe light cuts a rhythmic beat over the gurgling optical printed soundtracks. A rotating colour wheel turns the vision on screen into a brain melting vortex of abstracted shape. Duration shifting piece for blurred/sharp flickering vision. (3 x 16mm projectors, contact printed optical sound film loops, rotating colour wheel, laboratory strobe, oscillator synth, prismatic interference, bodily obstruction.)
The Films of Richard Tuohy, with a Film by Diana Barrie

Richard Tuohy – Recent Works
4 x 16mm loops, 15 minutes, 2009
A 4 projector loop work experimenting with apparent movement generated out of temporal relationships, rhythms, image collisions and acoustic emphases. Featuring my friend Toby, who like to say he ‘contains multitudes’. Made in response to the expanded cinema works of Bruce McClure.
16mm, 7 minuetes, 2009
Iron-wood is an abstract visual exploration of the deeply fissured 'cog-like' bark of the Australian tree Eucalyptus Sideroxylon - Red Ironbark.
16mm, 8 minutes, 2010
Flyscreen is a camera-less ‘rayogram’ (photogram) film, made by layering fly-screen material onto raw 16mm film stock and then exposing to light. The sound heard is the optical sound of the images passing the 16mm optical sound head. It is very Australian.
16mm, 15 minutes, 2010
Bones of a dead Tasmanian forest colourfully ‘ re-animated’ in a film printer.
3 x 16mm projectors, 11 minutes, 2010
Filmed on the broad, tree-less expanse of the Hay Plain, Horizontals makes a game of the endless horizon.
Etienne’s Hand 16mm, 13 minutes, 2011
A movement study of a restless hand. Made from one five second shot. Sound constructed from an old French folk tune played on a hand cranked music box.
1 or 3 x 16mm projectors, 18 minutes, 2011
Half-tone dot ‘screens’ intended for use as shadings and tones in Manga comic illustrations have here been ‘photogrammed’ directly onto raw 16mm film stock. A flicker collage of these dots has then been created using a16mm film printer. The sounds heard are those that the dots themselves produce as they pass the optical sound head of the 16mm projector. This is a camera-less and sound-recorder-less film!
