Abstract

Accidents Need Not Happen is an exhibition inspired by MACE will take place in the University of Lincoln’s newest gallery space, Project Space Plus. The Media Archive for Central England (MACE) is the screen archive for the Midlands in the UK. Acting as a database, MACE records and collects the data from daily life and social events in central England. The exhibition explored different artist's responses to the the archives; asking "what do we see when viewing these images and videos?"

My work is a video portrait of the celluloid-to-digital transfer machine at the MACE archive, it is a celebration of machinery and a lament for a now lost age of celluloid. In a former job as a projectionist I directly witnessed the transition from celluloid to digital projectors in the cinema in which I worked. I still have a huge nostalgia for celluloid film, but work with digital technologies to create films. The machine at MACE perfectly encapsulates this passing point between these two technological landmarks of cinema and my own conflicting relationship with the two.
