Call Of Art, The

by Hall, Nick

Video 1985


'Almost all my work is set in interior, usually personal, spaces. My films explore the paradoxical nature of light, the camera-eye, surface, structure, time and space. Recently I have become interested in the role of the body in negotiating space, because of how it contrasts with the implicit detachment of the monocular perspectival gaze, that is the camera's view. Telly is concerned with the spurious visual phenomena generated by the TV box itself and by the light it both emits and reflects. This imagery is combined with an examination of the over-looked background textures, surfaces and reflections found in the fragments of a British TV Soap (Brookside).' - N.H.
