Heatwork for Sparklers & Spycams

2003, 5.20 mins, colour, stereo, DV

Lee Patterson‘s ‘heatwork’ centres on discovery of sound in objects, structures and spaces, where it’s presence is an invitation to engage with the source.   In this collaboration with Dave Griffiths, both sources and sounds are raw materials in a sonic and optical inscription utilising basic recording technology and a performative working process. The spectacle is both a coding of the source matter and original event, and revelation and remembrance of earlier media forms.
