        Subject: [Frameworks] "Exploration of water as a physical active
component within Expanded Cinema"

        Dear Frameworks,

        I am currently a student at University of Central Lancashire
(Uclan) where I am doing a BA (Hons) Fine Art. Last term my studio work
led me into the realm of Expanded Cinema and for my finial submission I
did an expanded cinema installation involving 3 experimental films and 3
overhead projectors each of which had moving images. On one of the
projectors I had a clear plastic tub which had in it a washing machine
glass bowl in which I had water, a water pump and the clear waterproof
casing from a 35mm camera that created a moving image. Which was great,
as an experiment, however totally unsuitable for public exhibition!


        I am posting to frameworks for help with researching my


        I have chosen the working title of;

        Exploration of water as a physical active component within
Expanded Cinema


        I have been inspired by;

        Chris Meigh-Andrews lecture series at Uclan

        John Wood and Paul Harrison; Harry Houdini (there's no escape
that I can see) 1994

        Bradley Eros published article There will be projections in all
dimensions where he describes a projection from the New York Underground
film festival 2000. Where an 8mm projector and a glass of whiskey was
used to create cinema but not film? (What can I say Im Scottish!)

        Zoe Redmans; She, Her, I. Which I saw recently at Street Level
Photoworks in Glasgow

        Further research had uncovered;

        Robert Whitman; Two holes of water two (1966)

        Current Artists; Lenka Novakova and Michael Brown

        I was also intrigued by the recent listing for;

        Sites for seeing: Out of the Cineplex and into the Marshlands
curated by Gerda Cammaer with whom I have already corresponded.


        I am aware that there is a lot of artist who have worked with
film/video etc where water has been an integral part of the projected
image/installation i.e.; Chris Meigh-Andrews; Eau d'Artifice.


        However I am looking for examples of artists work where the
water is physically present (preferably moving) in the gallery space or
like Sites for seeing: Out of the Cineplex and into the Marshlands where
the projection has been taken out of the gallery space and into a watery


        This is my first post and I have been watching frameworks since
my trip to earlier on this year, so I am sure that I will
(hopefully) spark some discussion!

        Let the deluge begin! (Sorry couldnt help myself!)


        Hence, I would appreciate your help in this research and would
ask that if you have detailed information like Journal article, artist,
date, book title and page number or artists web site etc. That would be
great! As searching JSTOR or Google for Expanded Cinema and water doesnt
get you very far! Also if you are aware of any up and coming exhibitions
in the UK that would be relevant that would be great too!


        I would also ask Permission from the administrator of frameworks
to cite any discussions that occur in relation to this post.


        Thank you

        Jennifer Cadger
