We were back in Newcastle recently to do some research for our Moving Image Commission film, The Order of Things.
We were really fascinated to hear Alan answer our questions,
and were particularly fascinated to find out about studies of the inner
dialogue when running, and the conflict between the 'reporting and
directional' voices. We are considering how the physical responses in
the runners body can function as a strategy in the editing and narrative
building in The Order of Things.
The Appearance of Bridges
research has over the past few months revolved around the Bupa Great
North Run route and its material and structural surrounding. In the City
Library we came a cross this beautiful and insightful book (see below)
as well as some architectural gems in the form of City Council meeting
minutes about the aesthetics of motorway engineering.
