Looking For Sir Keith Joseph / Untitled Video: Face at the Window

by Rowlands, Brian

Video 1985


Face at the Window is a video self-portrait. My first use of video, it originated with a montage of sketches and photographs based on the reflection I saw when trying to look out of the window at night... Visually the piece is simple - a face and a candle - but the edited structure is important, and parallels, but does not synchronise with that of the audio tracks. In both image and sound there is a repeated sequence, in the former towards extinguishment, in the latter towards intelligibility. - B.R.
