 __VHS__ * is a regular film event at TACO!, where each screening is selected by invited contributors to form an expanding programme of moving image. '​Collapse'​ is the first event in the series, selected with artist and curator Mat Jenner. VHS takes its title as an acronym from Anthony Burgess’ nadsat vocabulary – a fictional language of ‘a not-too-distant future’ - developed for 'A Clockwork Orange',​ scenes from which were later shot on the Thamesmead estate. ‘Viddy’ means to see or look, and ‘horrorshow’ indicates ‘well’ or ‘good’.[[https://​taco.org.uk/​VHS|Details on the TACO! website]]. __VHS__ * is a regular film event at TACO!, where each screening is selected by invited contributors to form an expanding programme of moving image.

 __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. __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.
