"I first became interested in animation while working towards my BA in Architecture at the University of Cambridge. Working heavily with 3D modelling I designed buildings which were intended to be experienced as cinematic sequences and exhibited strong use of narrative structure in their layout. Following my BA I worked as a volunteer artist on Bassam Kurdali’s ‘Tube’ project in the BitFilms incubator lab at Hampshire College, Northampton, Massachusetts. There I focussed primarily on model and set design as well as being involved in special effects programming.

Following my time in the US I undertook a postgraduate diploma in Character Animation at Central St Martins, studying character acting and trying to further my script-writing abilities. With that experience I was able to gain a place on the Royal College of Art’s Animation MA programme. I spent the first year of my two years at the RCA trying to develop my drawing and script-writing, in both cases working from life and observation as much as possible. Alongside my practice I also undertook theoretical research towards my dissertation on the topic of audience perception of narrative construction in film. In my final year my time was almost completely consumed with the production of my graduation film, “The North Sea Riviera”.

Ruaidhri Ryan (London) is currently studying a postgradu- ate degree at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, he has exhibited nationally and internationally in film festivals, television and galleries.
Predominantly working with film & video, but occasionally designing clothes and furniture, Ruaidhri observes ‘perpetual longing and dissapointment’ through a deconstruction of cinema and images, of people and place.

Darren Banks (UK) incorporates found and made film footage into sculpture and installation to explore ideas about domesticity, defunct technologies, cinema and the unknown. The work questions the perception of sculpture in relation to objects, film and memory.

Banks is interested in the possibility of film as sculpture. Within his practice sculpture is not just confined to three dimensions, but can exist on and within different platforms and plateaus. As a horror film fanatic he’s intrigued by the aesthetic and structural devices used within the genre. Banks’ reworks the formal vocabularies of horror by isolating its tropes, use of montage and architecture.
Banks’ uses film by embedding it into sculptural assemblages. He believes in the neutrality between different objects, media and materials. For example, he uses film/video/internet in the same way as a piece of string or an ironing board. Accepting that film/video exists on the same plane as direct experience gives it equal footing in the world. Being open to this neutrality between objects, materials and media enables the work to escape the confines of the physical; creating new spaces within the work, where gravity is optional and objects and characters can take on new meaning through the processes of deconstruction and reconfiguring.

Tessa Garland is our Artist of The Day Today.. “I originally trained as a sculptor but for many years my work has been preoccupied with the moving image. Cinematic language allows me to explore and create places by piecing and layering together footage of journeys through spaces. I tend of focus on a place, landmark or idea and work with it over a long period of time, allowing it to grow in significance. I often build scale models to help me to understand and focus on my subjects, this preparatory work is filmed and reworked digitally to create short inserts that are collaged and layered together. Sound is vital to the work and once meshed with the imagery form atmospheric, often dreamlike work that is reminiscent of a memory or a premonition.

Katie Goodwin (UK) ‘I have been described as a cinematic magpie. Most of my source material is gleaned from the cutting room floor of the film production process.  I seek to reveal the stuff that the audience never sees, reprocessing and exposing moments that would otherwise be lost forever. Recycling waste and celebrating hidden labour are persistent intentions in my practice. Rescuing a moment or object and reanimating it is a form of bringing it alive - a kind of memento vivere. As my practice develops the found footage is more widely sourced from the scientist’s laboratory or amateur filmmaker’s attic or a chance junk market find from the anonymous auteur, but continues to explore the fetishisation and tangibility of a rare and unseen object.

John Rowley (Wales) has worked as an artist and an actor for the past 20 years. He makes work across a wide range of media including theatre, performance, film, sculpture and illustration. Reared in Essex, he has now been resident in Wales since 1990, initially working for the renowned site-specific theatre company, BRITH GOF. In addition to his solo practice he also makes art and performance works with colleague, Richard Huw Morgan as part of good cop bad cop and is an associate performer with the Sheffield-based experimental performance group, Forced Entertainment. In the summer of 2012 he was cast in a National Theatre of Wales’ production of Coriolanus and is about to develop his second children’s book for a well known publisher.

The Dark Sounds For A City (2004) series of films form part of a larger body of live performance and lens-based works, inspired by 1970’s and 80‘s BBC Sound Effects LPs (on vinyl and in mono, for amateurs). Commissioned by BBC Wales as part of Mad, Bad & Dangerous, its ‘artists-make-films-for-tv-transmission’ scheme, the intention was to create a number of micro-length narrative ‘dramas’ to be screened in the gaps between the channel’s scheduled programming.The results appear as incidents that could be seen to have been lifted from part of a larger project, at a point immediately ‘post-impact’, where we can only guess at what has been and what will potentially follow.

These films were some of the earliest shot on HD by BBC Wales (although never screened in HD) by Bafta Award Winning cinematographer, Rob Hardy.
