The core material for the performance is the creation of 160 photographic slides to be used in the projectors. These 35mm, hand processed images capture the reflected details of the city. The photographs have one thing in common; they all use the motif of window and glass. Images are made in all parts of the city: from inside and outside commercial buildings, factories, shopping malls, private houses, docks etc. (…) The performance brings together the live projection of the images along with a sound artist.

After dabbling in punk rock bands and absurdist performance, Greg Pope founded the Super 8 film collective Situation Cinema in 1986 and in 1989 Loophole Cinema in London. Using 16mm, Super 8 and video, Loophole Cinema were self-styled shadow engineers performing numerous events around Europe. Working collaboratively and individually, Pope has made video installations, live art pieces, cinema performances and single screen film works since 1996.  He currently lives in Norway and is active teaching, projecting, programming and making films www.gregpope.org

John Hegre has composed and recorded impro-music since 1995. He is highly known from several improvisation – contemporary and rock projects like: The Golden Serenades, Jazkamer, Kaptein Kaliber, Noxagt, Public Enema. Apart from this, Hegre has worked as a live-sound engineer and mastering technician, as well as performed music for theatre, dance and film.

This is a new production commissioned by Screen City Festival.
