Listening to the King of Limbs remix album and I started running an old security camera out of the tv and back into it to create video feedback.

“Last year – in a live show I did with Massive Attack – we tried to evoke this new world. We used a song from the 1980s called “Bela Lugosi’s dead” – which I love because it has a very powerful feel of repetition. The audience were surrounded by 11 twenty-five foot high screens.

I’m not sure how successfully we did it – but what I was trying to show is how your past is continually being replayed back to you – like a modern ghost. And it means we stand still unable to move forwards. Like a story that’s got stuck.

I’ve put a short bit of it together from some camera-phone videos shot by the audience in New York. It’s a bit rough – as is the sound – but you’ll get a sense of it.”

The project created around the Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire. The Gothic Mansion was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s. There were recordings with vintage mics and other analog machines then transformed into the powerful sounds you hear. All footage was filmed on site and broadcast, processed and captured before editing, mirroring Emptyset’s ‘chain of sound’ processes.

Single- channel video

A beautiful Japanese girl is found dead in a snowy field near Fargo, North Dakota. Internet rumours suggest that she had flown from Tokyo in search of the millions of dollars buried in the snow from a scene in the Coen Brothers film Fargo, apparently believing the films subtitle “this is a true story”.
First shown as feature documentary that was shot entirely as photographs this narrative recreates her journey, through eyewitness accounts to reveal a much darker and tragic truth.

“Steve Harries and Mel Bles traced the locations used in the making of famous 1970s films – including Taxi Driver, The Godfather and The Last Picture Show – and then photographed these places which, owing to their appearance on celluloid, have been strongly imprinted in the minds of millions moviegoers. What started as a simple journey turned into an epic road trip. They shot on Kodak colour negative film using a Mamiya 6×7 medium-format camera. Exhibition includes maps and ephemera. “
