"Cabinet of Curiosity - a Graveyard Romance" by Alec Chalmers and Rosemary Knowles.

Flatpack Festival 3 - Installation Trail #2, Up and Running shop window, Temple Street.
Showing until 15th March!

The brief was to create an installation and film to feature in a shop window. The theme was early cinema. This was the general treatment we submitted:

"A deceased couple awaken from the ‘big sleep’ to reminisce, possibly through dance, the ups and downs of their relationship."

See the full proposal and our process here.



We created the animation using a effect that could be described as a living collage. We liked the idea of re-using material to make something new, which fits with our theme of coming back to life!



Above is the animation in its installation context. As you can see it would be much better to see it in the flesh! See it quick before it disappears on the 15th! Up and Running is a running shop opposite Swordfish Records just off New Street.
