Wherever you are

The Victorian Movie Makers club was an amateur filmmaking group based in Fitzroy from 1938 – 2001. During its peak popularity the club had 160 members, who made scripted films, documentaries and comedies using 16mm film, Super 8 and early video technology.

In 2001 I met with the remaining members at their final meeting and was given a box of discarded Super 8 films. I created a triangular screening device for this archival footage, which converted the projected imagery into moving geometric patterns.
