Beverley Hood + Finn McAlinden
5mins 55secs 1996.

Transference was a collaboration of processes, both of us having very different working practices. The work was shot in a homogenous fashion as if following a narrative, using striking imagery of a solitary figure moving through varied environments.The displacement present in the visuals was further exaggerated through the process of editing.

We developed a formal structure within which to edit, attempting to explore the potential of the process of editing as a site for creativity.

The audio is the original sound, edited with the visuals to exaggerate and enhance the rhythm of the images.
