Telescape: A “Live” Mince

A pre-edited mince of footage: Telescape – Discerning Fact from Fiction

film_poster The film ‘poster’ containing fragments of what or where appears in the ‘telescape’ of the film, scattered across the narrative landscape of the desert.

In terms of jury feedback and what next the construction of my own fiction and even the production of drawings/objects and pieces that can feature within it was quite interesting. Thinking of ways of developing this further than just “it’s a fictional story made to seem real/factual”

Mincing Facts in Screens _ 2.0

An intro image: The Politics of a video call … how Erdogan topples a coup thanks to Face Time!


So following on the mind-bender of last week here’s another image to reconstruct the interiors/exteriors and the final fact of the story. If you can’t work it out visually a brief explanation follows beneath the images.

A film of the set-up

So the incubator babies of the first Gulf War is the fact/lie in this test but I am inclined to weave contemporary one in the next iterations. This test instead of just two linked locations is going through three. Still between two countries (Uk and Cyprus) but from my location, to a room in Cyprus and then inside a metal shipping container (turned tool shed). The narratives are yet to become location-specific in the way that the first fact/lie is transmitted through them but that is the next phase.

Working on another test today to try the location idea again and diagram the ‘construction of fact; more specifically to start building a narrative with actions/dialogues at each screen location. The outcome is brief and fairly direct but the set-up logistics need working on. Any feedback is welcome.

Some fun Baroque plans (since we refered to Bernini and Borromini last time)


Inside? Outside? This cross design of a city at the sea (Ancona) by Bernardo Antonio Vittone, an Italian architect of the Rococo period, won the first price in the Concorso Clementino in 1732. The fountain in the middle was a copy of Bernini’s ‘Four Rivers’ fountain on the Piazza Navona in Rome.
