Beautiful butterflies at London Zoo

Analogue Recurring, an annual analogue film night at Lo & Behold, Shoreditch in London, returned on Friday 18 July with yet another fantastic programme.

My favourites were an exquisite piece called RGB by Guisy Pirrotta, a 16mm film of photograph sculptures of gardens which looked like they were from a dream or a distant memory.

OXO XOXO by Karel Doing was a really clever 16mm double screening film which used imagery of Xs and Os, including the OXO tower and London Eye, set to a rhythm which seemed to work perfectly.

Lastly Bea Haut’s Passage was another double screen 16mm piece where the artist took various objects towards the middle of the double screen, disappearing into the void. It worked really well partly because it wasn’t a mirror image, rather the actions were mirrored.

Unfortunately I had to leave before the second half so no doubt missed out on some gems, but I thoroughly enjoyed the first half, and hope I have something to submit again next year!

'Vert-bow' at ATP in Ásbrú, Iceland, July 2014. I've never seen anything like this before, how is it made, are they rare?

Viking rune near Hella, South Iceland. The locals who showed us this think it might have been a stonemason apprentice practicing his signature.

ATP Iceland - what a blast! Enjoyed beautiful and awesome music from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Mogwai, Liars, Samaris, Portishead, Fuck Buttons, Forest Swords and Interpol. You were all fantastic.

Monday Music: ‘Mess on a Mission’ by Liars - brilliant song, genius computer generated music video, and one of my top musical highlights at ATP Iceland last week.

Monday Music - Manic Monday by the Bangles, because the trains in south London this morning were ridiculous.
