The works feature live camera feeds from various locations around the world accompanied by haunting mp3 scores, again appropriated from elsewhere online. Whilst beginning with film leader and ending with credits, these ‘templates’ are filled different every time they are viewed. Some are fixed views, others controlled by unknown ‘directors’.
The Template Cinema project began in 2002 with a networked installation: Short Films about Flying which featured live views of an airfield, snippets of audio from online radio stations and text from message boards.
In my own work I am interested in combining this is the sort of work (network/database cinema) with the real time malleability of sound art and VJ performance.
