Dreaming The Memories of Now
Essay Film/Art Film
Robert Brečević and Geska Brečević, Performing Pictures – Independent artistic platform
Journeying into the mythical space of the outlands of southern Mexico, visual artists Geska and Robert Brečević and their five-year old daughter Katja unearth complex stories in which time, memory and nostalgia are continually reenacted. Dreaming The Memories of Now leads us through a stunning and profound exploration of the artistic process of creation and an ethereal declaration of love for a place. Stretching the genre of documentary, this film poem is a composition of far-ranging thoughts, sun-drenched images and scenes of mystery, guided by the voice of the narrator and a gripping, visceral soundscape. http://dreamingthememoriesofnow.com/

I Like Mongolia and Mongolia Likes Me
Hermione Spriggs, University College London
The Anthropology of Other Animals (“AoOA”) explores the possibility of making art for humans and other species of animal through the creation of multisensory lures, decoys and traps. "AoOA” is also a sound produced by both humans and animals at moments of capture and release.“AoOA” is more broadly engaged in topographic translations between species, perspectives and scales, and has recently been instrumental in defining the curatorial strategy for an exchange between anthropologists at University College London and artists in Mongolia.

A reel unwinds into a stream of celluloid consciousness. An audio-play about cinema: part film-manifesto, part audio-essay, part cinematic-séance. Voices summoned from the lucid realms of the technologically-spirited, more-than- human archive.
Benjamin Spatz, University of Huddersfield
My current research explores the relationship between embodiment and audiovisuality. I have worked for many years in song and movement theatre and performance and have recently started to create video essays as research outputs of experimental embodied practice.
'Future City' the Montage of Virtualities and Realities through Video Art
Tess Baxter, Lancaster University
The video work ‘Future City’ brings virtual world material, archive film and creative commons music into juxtaposition.
