-__PHX [X is for Xylonite] in Edge of Frame / London International Animation Festival at Close Up Film Centre, London__+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  
-[[http://www.edgeofframe.co.uk/​surface-memory/​|Surface Memory]] is a programme curated by Edge of Frame for London International Animation Festival 2019A programme of five recent works at the intersection of animation, artists’ moving image and experimental film. Each of these films shares a concern with ideas of the surface in relation to the moving image, from the film negative to the computer screen, though each approaches the theme in markedly different ways. Covering considerable ground both geographically and formally, the works utilise film (Super8, 16mm and 35mm) and digital formats, often combining elements of the two to captivating effect. Beyond their often quite startling formal qualities these works delve into rich personal and social histories, spiritual quests and conceptual enquiries. From Hackney to Hong Kong, and from entrancing flicker to meditative spaces, these works offer a dynamic vision of contemporary practice.+RENCONTRES INTERNATIONALES,​ PARIS/​BERLIN  ​[25.02.20 01.03.20] >> Online ​

-__PHX [X is for Xylonite]__ presents a series of orbiting three-dimensional images of natural and semi-synthetic plastic objects, made through laser scanning and photogrammetry techniques. These are collaged with hand-processed black and white 16mm film footage, which includes a demolition on the site of the original Parkesine factory in Hackney Wick, where the first semi-synthetic plastic was invented. Both flickering, contingent materials allude to the history of cellulose nitrate - in particular, '​Xylonite'​ - in the development of photography and film as, until the mid-century shift to acetate, it was used as the base for film stock, and elsewhere to build props in film production. In ‘PHX’, plastics are proposed as strata; so that the layers that make up the film - its emulsion and plastic substrate - are made evident; like the material seams of plastic that will, in future sedimentary rock layers, signal our Anthropocene era and its flawed capitalist productions.+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
