Unconscious Archives transverses noise core and vision spectacle bringing together expanded cinema and sonic propositions from London and afar. This issue of Unconscious Archives offered a foray into the transcendental world of flicker and colour fields, monstrous electronics, energized animatics, and kinetic and kinesis film forms. 

Sculpture rocked the house with their special brand of outsider polymedia rave warp, with dizzyingly twisted ear and eye candy set to melt the mind and evoke synesthesia. Joel Stern took us on a interstellar expedition to uncover the tenuous slip streams between audio><vision. Roger Beebe constructed worlds from frames with expanded film beams and dredged photochemical investigations made from hand crafted cine devices. Stephen Cornford looked for the ghost in the machine by physically dismembering playback equipment. Simon Payne presented a new triple channel video work using colour and tone to exploit the flicker to new effect eliciting gorgeous stroboscopic mind melt. 

Unconscious Archives is programmed by Sally Golding OtherFilm & James Holcombe UA’s regular home is at the Apiary Studios, Hackney Rd, London. UA was joined on this special occasion at Cafe Oto by the full OtherFilmTeam from Brisbane, Australia.*
