STILL IMAGE MOVING by MANUEL VASON | Make Your Own Book
This publication has been put together after the site-specific participatory project Still Image Moving, which took place as part of Inbetween Time Festival 2010. It includes an introduction by Helen Cole – Inbetween Time Festival Director, a contextualising essay by Astrid Breel, project facilitators’ profiles, behind the scenes images, all the images created with the public of Bristol and the participants’ feedback.
From 2-15th December 2010 Bristol became a stage. Each day passers by were invited to create a performance to be recorded into an image. Manuel Vason in collaboration with his team of co-facilitators, used his experience of collaboration with international performance artists to facilitate the construction of unique actions/images, allowing each participant to express their individuality through live performance. As the sun set each action/image was turned into a large scale projection on site and around the city centre- creating a picture of a city in which the most energetic and charismatic performers are its residents. The public were able to come and create their performance images and then return as darkness descended to see their image projected.
Sites included: -The city centre at Central Promenade, Broad Quay -East Street, Bedminster -Gloucester Rd -St Pauls at the corner of Ashley Rd and Sussex Place
The absolutely amazing team of co-facilitators: Finn Noble-Delap, Vicki Wooley, Astrid Breel, Rusti Macapagal, Natasha Fewings, China Fish and Nick Ball
Commissioned and produced by Inbetween Time Productions in collaboration with Bristol City Council’s Neighbourhood Arts Team.
