Canal Incident

a two screen work

Shot on the towpath of the Regent's Canal, in the East End of London, the sound recordist walks ahead, in view of the camera. The sound is picked up by the microphone and is recorded directly onto the film. Canal Incident is a twelve minute take, and the view changes slowly at walking speed. The second screen presents a second take made one hour later, and in identical manner to the first. W.R
