At the Festival of Expanded Cinema, held at the ICA, London, in January
1976, a couple of blokes from Paris, Pierre Rovere and Ahmet Kut,

involved the presentation, on the floor, of small pieces of 16mm,
joined together at right angles. The idea was to make unprojectable
sculptural films! I've no idea what became of these two,
