2009, David Angus
Based on David Hall's TV Interruptions broadcast on Scottish television unannounced in 1971. DV Interruptions is a performance to camera, which shows the artist slowly covering up the screen with strips of mini DV tape, as the screen fills the tape creates a reflective surface illuminated by a single bulb.
Beginning with a white screen void of depth and surface, the DV tape added begins to reflect the artist movements within the studio it was created in. As the screen space is filled the viewer becomes aware of a space beyond what is being filmed, a space that constantly grows with each interruption. Shot on mini DV this piece becomes reflexive, DV tape is both the medium and the subject matter along with the mechanics of filming.
