Pierre Bastien at Faster Than Sound 2007

(assim até eu arranjar outra maneira de pôr isto)
Work, Rest & Play
has been carefully constructed using industrial and documentary film footage from 1940-1975 to follow the endless chug of the conveyer belt of life.
The film has been constructed as a triptych, where the whole is intended to be greater than the sum of the parts. Material from the Prelinger Archives and AV Geeks, two of the biggest ephemeral footage libraries in the world, has been pieced together in a symphony of movement and metamorphosis.
Images of production lines, factories, and educational and creative industries, are sandwiched by those of the winding up and down processes of the day, the hours of leisure and relaxation, to illustrate the endless whirr of activity in our pursuit of meaning and happiness.

Work, Rest & Play has been commissioned by Lovebytes in collaboration with Sheffield Galleries & Museums Trust. Funded by Arts Council England, Yorkshire and the European Regional Development Fund, Objective 1 South Yorkshire.
